sited at the location of a prominent intersection for foot traffic in the fond des blancs neighborhood of haiti, this proposal seeks to reinvigorate the after school learning / mentoring activity for the children and young adults of the area.  as part of a pro-bono commission with the former architecture for humanity, the library and community center would offer a new and safe location for local residents to access credible knowledge and interior working space.  through consistent access to internet, electricity, and a collection of resources, the aim of this community center is to create a rich activity space that will become a new destination for the residents of fond des blancs and further inspire cuture pro-bono work in the greater haiti locale.
