Rayjon has a rich 30 year history of supporting awareness and community development projects in rural and urban settings in Haiti, and more recently in the Dominican Republic.
Community Development seeks to empower individuals and groups of people by providing them with the skills they need to effect change in their own communities. Rayjon’s goal is to provide starting materials and education so residents of these communities are better able to improve the quality of their own lives.
The Urban Community Project in Cap-Haitian, Haiti involves four components: Education, Nutrition Program, Life Skills Programs, and the Help-Age Program (please use navigation at right). All programs are located at the C-NEW-C (Centre for Nutrition and Education for Women and Children, formerly called the Sacred Heart Centre).
