Since adoption of Sustainable Development Goals of 2030 by UNDP, AJFPD'H started working early for embarking in a first year program to combat household poverty in Haiti. This project will improve the lives of the most disadvantaged people in Communities of Center department by developing self-employ ability, increasing the household income generating and productive assets. That will enable self-reliance and enjoyment of life, as well as a decreasing of unemployment and migration of inhabitants.
Miserable life of families in center regions, is causing that the youth after passing the level of secondary school, are unable to join in higher education or undertake a vocational training. So they suffer a social inequality. As results, they involve in illegal activities such as prostitution, theft, kidnapping and so on to sustain their lives. Thus, their origin areas and nearby areas are affected by a critical status of insecurity . A threat that tends to be very widespread in the future.
This project will enhance the employ ability to 5 disadvantaged youth through vocational and skill development training on various trades. It will also provide a financial and market linkage support to them, to establish micro-enterprises at community level and acquire livelihood and self-employ ability. Another 6 poor families will benefit capacity building training for identifying and developing their own generating income scheme, and will receive capital support to launch their business.
A partnership for youth vocational training established, 5 families are raising out of poverty, and a registered Self-help cooperative society to promote marketing, financial and non-financial services to the poor people. Studies show, completing a vocational training and families may respond to their basic needs, poverty in Haiti would drop by more than 50%. This means less crime, less social inequality, less investment in social programs in the future and more professional in the market.
