Evaluation of CARE "Retrofit" approach for IDP resettlement in Haiti
Evaluation of the CARE resettlement strategies developed for IDP camp closures.
“CARE’s retrofit program has been empowering camp residents to find housing alternatives since 2012. A family living in a camp finds a homeowner whose house is damaged. In exchange for financial and technical assistance to repair their houses, homeowners agree to host the family rent-free for 12 to 24 months. Homeowners manage the project, which provides structural repairs through a technique called retrofit. They purchase materials locally and hire local workers, contributing to the neighborhood economy. CARE’s engineers train the workers, inspect materials and supervise the work.” Extract from the CARE Five-Year Progress Report
