In this multimedia interactive story, readers will explore the rebuilding efforts undertaken by the Haitian government and scores of NGOs in the years since the January 2010 earthquake. Each page features a representative narrative of Hatian life post-earthquake, from the still-empty, multi-million dollar, brand new housing development Morne-a-Cabri, to the problems of illegal hill towns and washed out roads during the rainy season. Along the way, readers are asked to make choices, as if they are officials involved in the reconstruction of the nation. Will you send in bulldozers to raze an illegally built neighborhood? Will you pay a bribe to expedite construction work? Available in both English and French, this detailed and informative project, which was funded by the European Journalism Centre and the Innovation in Development Reporting Grant Programme, presents colorful images and complex narratives to bring readers into the reality of what it will take to rebuild this island nation.
