Pak nan Ginen

Pak nan Ginen is a community park that is being created in a rural area outside of St IMG_5071Raphael in an area called Rakblez. This used to be a heavily forested area, and over the years, due to the degradation of Haiti’s rural economy, ma ny people were forced to resort to cutting down trees to make a living. The community park will be a small model forest, where trees of every kind will be planting with the help of people in the area. It will also be used as a memorial space where trees will be planted in the name of legendary figures in Haitian history, peace-builders from around the world, and family members of people from the community.

Pak nan Ginen se yon pak kominote kap kreye nan yon seksyon kominal deyo Sen Rafayel, nan yon zon ki rele Rakblez. Lontan sa te yon zon ak anpil pye bwa, men apre sitiyasyon difisil ki vin genyen andeyo, moun yo te sanse oblije koupe pye bwa yo pou y viv. Pak sa a pral yon ti fore model, kote nap plante tout kalite pye bwa ak ed moun nan zon nan. Li pral yon espas memoryal tou paske chak pye bwa pral plante nan nom yon hero Ayisyen, yon moun ki te fe lape nan lemond, ak e kek lot moun ki te che pou yon moun nan zon nan ki pa la anko.

 

IMG_5086The park is also an open space that community members can use, including a shaded meeting space, a well for garden and household use, and a latrine. The area can be used for demonstrations, training, and workshops that neighbors can use to teach their neighbors.

Pak la se yon espas ouvet pou tout aktivite positif nan kominote. Moun yo ka sevi avek li kom yon espas reyinyon, yo sevi ak pwi a, e genyen yon latrin tou. Espas la ka itilize pou fomasyon, demonstrasyon, ak atelye kote moun ka aprann moun tout konesans lokal.
