A picture of Jalousie Slum in Port-au-Prince

This is the view in Port-au-Prince, one of Haiti's biggest shantytowns,called jalousie. It is a large number pf homes located on a mountainside in the nation's capital. Currently, there is a project to paint them

Many people were employed to start painting the concrete facades of buildings in Jalousie slum in a rainbow of purple, peach, lime and cream. This idea was taken from the famous Haitian artist and Haitian painter Prefete Duffaut in his famous work "cities-in-the-skies".

This project is to cost the government $1.4 million
