Farm Haiti is dedicated to assisting farmers by:
1.) Giving them access to technology to improve their yields/harvests.
2.) Train them to establish self sufficiency through sustainable program development.
3.) Serve as a resource center to address challenges as they arise from soil management to market.
Approximately 10 million people live in Haiti with 80% of the population living under the poverty line and 54% in abject poverty. Many are small farmers in rural areas beyond mountains shadowing Port Au Prince. Their success or failure determines whether they have enough to eat, are able to send their children to school, can afford to receive much needed medical care and can earn any money to save. They represent what used to be the cornerstones of Haiti's breadbasket.
The challenges facing Haitian farmers are varied and while seemingly insurmountable for them, would require but some basic intervention. Some are a matter of economics, others infrastructure and finally access to modern technological methods using resources they already have or they could obtain in organized groups. Our goal is to facilitate just that. Whether its sharing knowledge on organic farming methods, putting in motion sustainable programs or organizing farmers into groups with greater purchasing and marketing.
