Challenge

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. The majority of its population are subsistence farmers. They farm highly eroded mountainsides, are dependent on money lenders, and have little to no support from government services for health, education and agricultural production. Peasant organizations exist, yet many lack strong capacity or diversified leadership to promote self-reliance and development.

Solution

The program will strengthen the organizational structures of 8 peasant organizations to better manage agricultural production, income-generating activities, and improve community and reproductive health.

Long-Term Impact

The local committees that manage sustainable agriculture training, the creation of seed, grain, and tools banks, savings and credit cooperatives, and health and reproductive health activities will be better able to help the community.

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
