Gearing up for a new planting season

Oxen ready to plow fields
Oxen ready to plow fields

It is an important time of year in Haiti – its planting season.  Members of ROJETAT are gearing up to plant crops and maximize the use of their land.  Thanks to invaluable support by donors like you, ROJETAT is ready to utilize the use of ox-plows to cultivate and prepare their land.  Newly purchase oxen and a plow will help Haitian farmers plow their fields in a timely and efficient manner.  Previous years’ planting seasons have been a stressful and back-breaking time for Haitians who were left to plow their fields by hand using hoes.  The introduction of an ox-plow service is quickly making this tough reality a thing of the past!

Help continue to support Haitian peasants like members of ROJETAT as they strive for improved methods to cultivate their fields and increase crop outputs.  Empowering entire communities towards greater self-sufficiency and food security is an investment well made.
