Summary

One in four children in rural Haiti are malnourished. The Haiti Goat Project is dedicated to alleviating child malnutrition in rural Haiti while also supporting the local agricultural community. The Haiti Goat Project will provide weekly goat meat-vegetable based lunches to 190 malnourished rural Haitian school children for a year. Because our Haitian team members buy meal components from local sources, this project also supports the local Haitian farming community.

Challenge

Children in rural Haiti suffer from malnutrition because their diets are extremely limited by financial, educational and social constraints. Twenty-five percent of children in rural Haiti are malnourished due to deficiencies in essential nutrients, such as protein, iron, and Vitamin A. Children who experience these deficiencies over a sustained period of time can suffer from blindness and anemia as well as limited cognitive development.

Solution

The Haiti Goat Project will prepare & serve Chili Kabrit, a nutritious meal made from locally sourced goat meat and vegetables, to rural Haitian children for a year through a school-based lunch program. Our Haitian team now serves 675 meals weekly & is prepared to scale to the next level. Chili Kabrit supplies 100% of a child's daily protein, iron and Vitamin A requirements as well as other key nutrients. This project will provide 190 more pre-K & kindergarden children with Chili Kabrit meals.

Long-Term Impact

With the introduction of protein, iron & Vitamin A in their weekly diet, these children will be healthier and more able to learn during their school year. School children represent the future of Haitian society and well-nourished children will be better able to take advantage of their education, helping them to rise out of poverty and benefit their community. Purchase of goat meat & vegetables for making Chili Kabrit meals will also support local farmers' livelihoods throughout the school year.
