Adopt-a-Street program exists to improve the cleanliness and appearance of Haiti streets through civic participation that empowers individuals to contribute positively to their communities. Active adopt a street program members commit to taking care of a specific street or stretch of road and do regular cleanups that includes pick up litter, remove debris, and address other maintenance needs. This reduces the number of streets that rely on government resources for maintenance while creating safer, cleaner, and more aesthetically pleasing public spaces for the benefit of residents and visitors alike.
