Three years after the devastating Port-au-Prince earthquake, one of the largest international relief projects in Haiti isn’t anywhere near where the quake hit. It’s an industrial park on the north coast halfway between Cap-Haitien and its border with the Dominican Republic.
Aid agencies are pouring millions of dollars into the project to encourage people to move out of the overcrowded capital and create jobs. Critics, however, say the jobs don’t pay enough to lift people out of poverty.
The Caracol Industrial Park is one of the most tangible developments to come out of the billions of dollars in post-earthquake aid to Haiti.
