Our Mission: Promote and improve agricultural practices and veterinary care of animals to help rural families achieve food and income security and improve public health in the Sud District of Southern Haiti. We do this by providing funding and other resources to Haitian agronomists, in particular Etienne Francois, our partner for many years, veterinarians, and other local leaders to implement programs developed in their cultural context and within community structures.

Our seasonal focus programs this year are Seeds & Hand Tools for farmers, Summer Agronomy Interns and their veterinary projects, Micro-Loans for Women, and of course an annual kids’ program, which is Goats & Vegetable Gardens for Interrupted Education.

We are urgently requesting donations to purchase seeds and tools for farmers to increase their production of crops. This is especially important now because so many people are returning from Port Au Prince to live after being forced out of the capital by gangs.
