Thank you for your support of the Feeding Families project in Haiti! Funds from Global Giving have contributed to vegetable production activities, trainings in rabbit farming, and general management assistance in several communities in Grand Boulage, Sibert, and Kenscoff. Working with our local partner Makouti Agro-Enterprise, we are finding creative ways to respond to the ongoing food crisis in Haiti. For rural Haitians, increased small animal production and sales translates into food for family consumption in addition to growth and diversification of family income. Rabbit meat, for example, is high in protein and in high demand in-country. Trainings in rabbit production have educated rural Haitians in proper cage construction, animal nutrition, and meat processing. Future plans include reinforcing the roof of the animal-processing facility in Sibert. This will help producers ensure the safe and hygienic processing of their products. As the quality of the meat improves, so too should demand and in-turn, farmers’ incomes.
Thank you again for your generous assistance with these activities!
