Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Agricultural Program

Currently we are working with a local agronomist who has been growing fruit and vegetables that will be given to the community members for free. The purpose of this project is to help families begin to grow their own food for consumption and business. For them to receive free plants through our program they will have to take classes at the community center on basic care of the plants and a business class to sell their own produce.

Along with helping out the community, this project will begin to work on helping the issue of deforestation in the area. This too, will be part of the education to the community for the importance of working to plant trees and plants for the area!

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our ultimate goal is to make Haitian Communities become self-sufficient through education. We plan to accomplish this through community educational classes geared toward skill trainings that can be implemented into local work and also to work with individuals to create their own small businesses to create opportunities for themselves and their families.

Future Projects in the Works:
We are currently in the primary stages of working with another organization to teach community members how to make soap to sell as a business. We are also working with an individual who is a fashion designer that will teach sewing to the community!

Our board members are the only 'working' individuals working with us. But all of them are highly skilled and have been able to bring in needed skills such as translation, land for building sites, development of a few programs and spreading the word about what our work is about. From this we have a few volunteers helping in creating our first volunteer groups to come down and begin teaching skills to the community along with help build structures needed for our community center.

We have been able to hire one person in Haiti as our agronomist. This person is starting our plants that will be given to the community members that will be used for a variety of things including food production and deforestation in the area.

We have also began our planning process for two other programs will will implement into the community by summer 2016.

We have not bee able to build the community center yet as a result of funding. We also have not been able to set up events yet to begin the process of more funding nor have not been able to apply for any grants as we are looking for experience to help with this area.
