Rayon Solèy: refuge for the dreamer

Milk Carton on a String is proud to announce that we have accquired a property in Malgré, a voodoo community in Leogane, Haiti with a high percentage of unschooled, unemployed inhabitants. On this property, we will build a Community Arts Center, a refuge for the residents of Malgré, and of Haiti, to come and dream. Rayon Soleil, a key part of this project's title, means "sunshine" in Haitian Creole. Malgré was once described to me by a six year old as "the place where the sun doesn't shine." With Rayon Solèy: Refuge for the Dreamer, Milk Carton on a String is striving to bring light, and sunshine, into this dark community.
