Currently we are working with a local agronomist (pictured to the right) who has been growing fruit and vegetables that will be given to the community members for free. The purpose of this project is to help families begin to grow their own food for consumption and business. For them to receive free plants through our program they will have to take classes at the community center on basic care of the plants and a business class to sell their own produce.
Along with helping out the community, this project will begin to work on helping the issue of deforestation in the area. This too, will be part of the education to the community for the importance of working to plant trees and plants for the area!
We are starting to collect seeds that can be used in Haiti’s environment to begin growing larger varieties of fruits, vegetables, and trees in the area. If you would like to send us a packet of seeds please click here!
Mobile Medical Clinic:
We have successfully partnered with Sante Haiti, a medical group providing health and medical care to Haitians. In May 2017 we had our first successful mobile medical clinic with Sante Haiti. As a result of this trip both organizations are in the process of building a medical clinic together in northwest Haiti. Find out more here.
Future Projects in the Works:
We are currently in the primary stages of working with another organization to teach community members how to make soap to sell as a business. We are also working with an individual who is a fashion designer that will teach sewing to the community! We are looking for monetary donations to start this project for sewing machines and to collect materials to produce soap.
More to come soon on these projects!
