Meet the Mozayik cooperative. Located on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince, Haiti – the women who harvest and dry fruit here are resilient. Torn from their homes in the 2010 earthquake there are over 126 families, the majority of which are still living in the slums of Port-au-Prince. Many of them hope to learn how to dry fruits to help generate significant income so they may escape severe poverty and be reunited with their loved ones back home.
You’ll find much progress here. On 3.2 acres of rolling hills and farms sit many mango trees, a creek for washing and playing, and of course singing. Music is a huge part of this cooperative, here you will always hear someone humming and harmonizing. All you need to do is listen.
