Haiti is facing serious deforestation problems. In 1924, 60% of Haiti was forested, today, less than 1.5% of forest cover left. As Haiti's mountains are stripped of their trees,a vicious process is begun:tropical rains carry away the nutrient-rich top soil into the Caribbean Sea, leaving barren land and killing the fishes & coral reefs.The fish market is vital to Haiti's economy,as well as to the nourishment of the people.This natural tragedy also negatively influences the tourist industry


Our 30 acre site location in Arcahaie, is near the Montrouis Watershed which has been the focus of USAID's Economic Development for Sustainable Environment.Our project creates hundreds of sustainable,agricultural jobs for local community members and those who have been displaced in the area.

Long-Term Impact

The reforestation of the mountains in Arcahaie will cause positive,long term effects. The land will become productive for farming and the marine life will be restored. The beneficiaries will be an estimate 1.5 million poor rural farmers and their families, including families displaced by the January 12th earthquake in 2010
