“Yon Jou Nan Lavi a Nan” (A Day in the Life)
In many rural homes, the kitchen is located outside the living quarters and there is no electricity or piped water. Additionally, sanitation facilities often consist of a simple latrine dug at a distance from the house.

“Timoun Lekòl nan Jwe” (School Kids at Play)
Although primary education is free and compulsory, only a small proportion of Haitian children attend school because of distance and availability of facilities and staff, and cost of uniforms and textbooks. The schools are typically private or church-administered institutions. Approximately three-fifths of the adult population is literate and the rate of illiteracy is higher in the countryside than in the cities.

“Kay la Mache” (The Walk Home)
The serene Haitian countryside consists of houses typically made with mud walls and floors, and roofs constructed of corrugated metal or thatched with local grasses and/or palm leaves. The windows are often pane-less and covered with wooden shutters or colorful Haitian cloth.
