In the vibrant heart of Cite Soleil, Haiti Creates is more than just a brand, we're a movement - bridging the gap between commerce and community. Our factory, built within the footprint of the Cite Soleil Community School (CSCS), serves as the cornerstone of this initiative, where local artisans transform discarded materials into striking products, each narrating its unique tale of hope.
Sustainability: Crafting A Better Tomorrow
We're not just crafting products; we're sculpting a brighter, greener future.
- Recycled with Care: Most of our products are birthed from discarded rice bags, plastic water sacs, and recycled cardboard. This approach not only reduces waste but also ensures that our products are as unique as the stories behind them.
- Solar-Powered Potential: Fueled primarily by solar panels, we emphasize renewable energy sources, ensuring our carbon footprint remains minimal.
Community: Building Together, Rising Together
Cite Soleil, despite its challenges, is teeming with potential, resilience, and an undying spirit of community.
- Education First: Located within the premises of CSCS, our initiative provides essential financial support for the school's daily meal program and operating expenses.
- Breaking Cycles: Through employment opportunities and skill training, we aim to shift the narrative from dependency to empowerment. Our mission is to elevate every individual, giving them the tools to craft their own future.
The Factory: Heart of Haiti Creates
Cite Soleil Art Center, fondly termed as our factory, is where magic unfolds.
- Locally Owned & Operated: Owned and managed by passionate Haitians, the factory is a symbol of local empowerment and entrepreneurship.
- Innovation at Its Best: Our workforce, brimming with creativity, constantly seeks innovative ways to transform waste into wonders. It's here that trash gets a second chance, morphing into items of beauty and utility.
Step into our world, where every product, every thread, every stitch embodies a dream of a better tomorrow. Welcome to Haiti Creates, where we don't just craft products; we craft futures.
