Program Summary

The Haiti Baie-de-Henne program aims to assist families to get back on their feet within the context of natural disasters, insecurity, political instability, fuel crisis, and food insecurity. In this challenging context, Church World Service and local partner Organisation des Planteurs de Fond Saint-Luc pour le Développement Intégré de Baie-de-Henne (OPFSLDIBH) are working to reestablish and strengthen the economic capacities of farming families in Baie-de-Henne.

The program focuses on increasing the resilience of families with regard to climate, security, and economic shocks, through the diversification of livelihoods. Trainings on soil conservation techniques help increase the availability of safe water and agricultural production. Providing small loans to farmers to invest in various income-generating activities helps families diversify their livelihoods and earn an income during times of drought or between farming cycles to purchase food, pay school fees, and invest in seeds and other inputs.
