Agriculture is the hope of rural Haiti.
A community’s ability to sustainably grow, distribute and market its own food is fundamental to its well-being. Agriculture provides food and income to families and children. It offers young Haitians an opportunity to go into business for themselves. And it happens to be the best way to bring trees and forests back to this beautiful island.
To date, we’ve improved the health and lives of more than 50,000 children in 15,000 families. And we’ve launched the careers of 200+ young entrepreneurs.
Our model has two interwoven components- educating young entrepreneurs in agribusiness, and launching family-led smallholder farms. Both are quickly summarized below.
