"Feeding Families" is a sustainable farm project to help 500 families address hunger in Haiti through vegetable gardens, fruit tree plantings, and the breeding of goats, rabbits and chickens.
Responding to the current food crisis in Haiti, this project will provide an on-going supply of locally grown food to 500 families in rural Haiti. Vegetable gardens, fruit trees, and livestock products will balance diets and help fight malnutrition. The project will provide hope and keep people from leaving their land for the slums of the larger cities in Haiti. This self-help project will serve as a model for farmers who struggle to survive with subsistance farming.
The project will provide start-up supplies and training for square foot gardens, fruit tree nurseries, and animal husbandry. MAKOUTI Agro Enterprises, a grassroots organization in Haiti, and the POA Farmer to Farmer Program will provide support.
"Feeding Families" will enable 500 families to address hunger caused in part by soaring food costs, by producing locally the food they need for their own health and well-being, on a continuing and sustainble basis.
In my 22 overseas assignments, this organization (MAKOUTI) is going to succeed. It is a grassroots effort in Haiti with minimal help from the outside, improving lives and helping their country - John Malcheski, Volunteer in the Farmer to Farmer Program
