Harvesting 4 Haiti Foundation’s (H4H) goal is to help Haitian agriculture initiatives become self-sustaining by providing financial and business assistance, thereby reducing poverty through long-term development.
Our goal is to help reduce poverty by assisting a Haitian agriculture initiative with financial and business resources until they have become self-sustaining.
We are helping Planting for Hope and Future (PHF). They develop rural farms to bring jobs and food security to the people. Currently six farms are operational (five owned).
The plan is to purchase and develop one farm per year in the same location until it is profitable enough to be independent and become a self-sustaining model.
Expanding farmland, all in the same location, is key to the plan of achieving self-sustainability. Once enough farms are in full production, the vision will become reality.
Careful planning by Planting for Hope and Future is done for each variety of crop. Perennials that continue to produce year after year are the primary consideration for cost-effective production.
Since the beginning of this project, thirteen different varieties of crops have been taken to the local marketplace. Providing fresh, nutritious and affordable food to a food-insecure population.
People are excited to invest in something that will make a long-lasting impact. “ Simply increasing aid is not enough. Investment must be made with the national Haitians working to pull themselves out of poverty with dignity ”.
