Harvesting 4 Haiti (H4H) is dedicated to providing assistance to self-sustaining agriculture initiatives in Haiti. At this time, H4H is giving financial assistance to Planting for Hope and Future (PHF), an organization in Haiti that is Haitian founded and Haitian run. Their vision is to create agro-business opportunities for local communities to turn their farmlands into sustainable income. Over 70 jobs (13 full time and 57 part-time) have been created a s result of this project.
In October of 2016 Hurricane Matthew hit Haiti and completely destroyed all 3 of our farms. Most of the men on our team also lost their homes, so we have been in a season of rebuilding. In August of 2017, H4H Foundation brought a financial planning expert to Haiti to develop a plan for self sustainability. In order to achieve this goal, we need to purchase 1 to 2 additional farms each year for the next 5 years. We recently found 2 new farms (4 acres total) which are adjacent to our existing farms and are right by good source of water. The cost for this land purchase is $16,300 and we will also need to build cistern for an additional $1,000.
Please help us to reach this dream of giving Haitians the dignity of work, feeding many, and "teaching" our men to fish versus just "giving" them a fish!
