Mutual Aid Housing Cooperative LasCahobas

Name: Mutual Aid Housing Cooperative LasCahobas N° of Employees: 6
City: Port-au-Prince N° of Members: 25
Country: Haiti Year of formation: 2012

Mutual Aid Housing Cooperative in LasCahobas’ goal is to address the situation of 25 families displaced as a consequence of the 2010 earthquake so that they improve their habitat, strengthen their organizational skills and achieve a positive integration to the receiving community environment. While there are many challenges in Haiti when it comes to providing adequate shelter, we believe by fostering an unprecedented level of collaboration with donor cooperatives, ICA Americas, housing cooperative FUCVAM, the Swedish Cooperative Aid Agency, the Haitian partner GARR (group of Aid to Refugees and Returnees) and local communities, we can help Haitian families improve their housing conditions.
