Behind the brightly painted exterior of Jalousie, one of Haiti’s largest slums, lies a community struggling with a lack of sanitation, intermittent electricity and rivers of plastic waste. Conservative estimates suggest more than 80,000 people now live in Jalousie, many of whom arrived after the 2010 earthquake, which the area miraculously escaped relatively unscathed. Life is often cramped, chaotic and challenging, but Jalousie’s residents manage to find dignity, hope and a sense of community, regardless of the challenges of poverty and oppression that they face.
