Vre Lavi Ayiti - True Life Haiti

The Solution:

 

Malnutrition in Haiti is the result of a combination of factors, most of which are not addressed by rescue operations and handouts. While the needs are great, a permanent, sustainable solution for Haiti is within reach. The four-pronged plan not only saves lives, but puts Haiti on the path to a stronger future.

It is our approach to use local farms and local resources to grow quality peanuts that can be used by MFK to manufacture Medika Mamba, a treatment for malnutrition, which in turn develops the local economy.

The current MFK factory can’t keep up with the demand for Medika Mamba. The larger, more efficient Meds & Food for Kids factory will not only save more lives through increased production, but will have a deeper impact on the country’s economy, by employing and training more Haitian workers and using more Haitian raw materials.

 
The Three-Part Plan

01: Jobs

We must create more jobs for Haitians so that they can lift themselves out of the poverty that leads to malnutrition.

02: Training

People are ready to work, but with few training programs and educational opportunities available, many are hindered by limited knowledge and outdated practices.

03: Agriculture

By purchasing raw materials in Haiti and sharing knowledge with farmers about how to improve their crops, we help develop markets and encourage production and growth.

 

 

Developing Haiti—Creating Jobs and Skilled Workers

We must create more jobs for Haitians so that they can lift themselves out of the poverty that leads to malnutrition. People are ready to work, but with few training programs and educational opportunities available, many are hindered by limited knowledge and outdated resources. When we can share knowledge and train workers in specific areas, not only are we meeting our need for people who can help us effectively deliver our mission, but we are also building human capacity.

Developing Haiti—Job Training

People are ready to work, but with few training programs and educational opportunities available, many are hindered by limited knowledge and outdated resources. Meds & Food for Kids will assist Vre Lavi Ayiti to share knowledge and train workers in specific areas, not only are we meeting our need for people who can help us effectively deliver our mission, but we are also building human capacity.

Vre Lavi Ayiti will partner with IDEJEN who contributes to the improvement of living conditions of vulnerable youth aged 15 to 24 through a real socio economic reintegration in their own community and offers a second chance to vulnerable and poor youth to become independent and to participate to the socio-economic development of the country as an empowered citizen.

Developing Haiti—Agriculture

By MFK purchasing raw materials in Haiti and Vre Lavi Ayiti sharing knowledge with farmers about how to improve their crops, we help develop markets and encourage production and growth. Vre Lavi Ayiti will work MFK agronomists to assist farmers, helping to improve the quality of their peanuts and their yield. We bring information about modern methods of planting, cultivation and fertilizing, treating seeds to avoid fungus and toxins, and controlling weeds. Farmers are introduced to machinery and tools that make their work easier, and at the same time increase their yields.
