Growing Hope Globally and Church World Service have partnered for several years to support families in the Northwest Department of Haiti. The Northwest is one of the most food insecure areas in Haiti. Due to the lack of paved roads, there are few nonprofits working there to support families as they face the challenges of both frequent droughts and hurricanes. Growing Hope Globally and Church World Service are now working in five communities with a local association called AGEHPMDNG.
The program is focused on soil conservation, reclaiming 60 hectares of land, so that the ground can be used for agroforestry activities. Families are also being supported in veterinary services and access to better breeding stock. Cisterns are being constructed so families can capture rainwater, both for farming and for household consumption.
