The JE NAN JE campaign goal is to work in solidarity with the most vulnerable and affected Haitians to influence the aid accountability process in Haiti’s relief and reconstruction through participative policy analysis and grassroots-driven advocacy strategies that address power imbalances.
The 2011-2012 land and housing rights campaign will help ActionAid narrow its focus on aid accountability, in order to actualize larger advocacy victories under the JE NAN JE principles of rights-based aid accountability.The land and housing rights campaign will prioritize strong aid accountability and transparency and reform the national housing plan to help secure safe, affordable, long-term housing for the most vulnerable displaced Haitians, partnering with Haitian social movements and focusing on the rights and protection of vulnerable groups.
The JE NAN JE coalition organized a march in Hinche (Haiti’s Central Plateau) on June 21st, 2011 to demand:
- Land to build proper housing for people living in tents since the earthquake of January 2010
- Accountability and transparency on Haiti’s reconstruction funds
- That local seeds are protected and are used in Haiti to secure local agriculture
- A stop to agricultural land grabbing
Close to 10,000 people participated in the march.
