For the past year, online and in the pages of The Globe, reporter Jessica Leeder and photographer Deborah Baic have documented the struggles of Jacmel, Haiti, and its people to rebuild and recover from last January's devastating earthquake.



Ms. Leeder and Ms. Baic told that continuing story with a cast of characters and their locales, from the film student who lost his best friend and mentor, to the shopkeeper who failed to secure a microloan, to the artisans who tapped new global markets for their papier-mâché products.



Along the way, in photos, video, features and blogs, the Globe team documented dozens of other stories that gave readers a glimpse of the steep road ahead for Haiti: from the ghost camps and food worries to sexual crimes in the tent cities and the electricity shortages that threaten reconstruction.
