New Playground at Konbit Bibliyotek in Port-au-Prince, Haiti
Konbit Biblyotek Site Soley is a special community library project in Site Soleil, an extremely impoverished community in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The children love having a safe place to run and play after reading and hanging out in the library.
According to Site Soley, the grass roots efforts of “a group of young artists and intellectuals” have led to the building of a new library, Konbit Bibliyotek Site Soley. “This project is called Konbit Bibliyotek for a reason, because it leverages the principles behind the traditional Haitian practice of Konbit: if everyone contributes what they can, we can collectively achieve what no one could achieve alone.”
