Konbit Soley Leve is a social movement founded in Cite Soleil on June 25th, 2011. Its vision is a Cite Soleil that overcomes divisions between neighborhoods & takes its own destiny into its hands to build a better future. It is an a-political, unregistered, non-hierarchical movement that is built on the traditional Haitian practice of konbit. It has become almost a living philsophy in Cite Soleil - anyone leveraging local resources for a community vision while reaching across neighborhood divides is a part of the movement.
