Vre Lavi Ayiti - True Life Haiti

What We Will Do:

 

Vre Lavi Ayiti will development projects involving high revenue peanut cash crops and marketing programs. We will bring farmer producer groups, extensive training and technical assistance in propagation, production, post-harvest and marketing activities. Vre Lavi Ayiti will develop an agricultural training farm, involving direct production and marketing activities for peanut farming. The production and marketing of peanuts will serve as a dynamic demonstration platform for collaborating farmers. Direct experience helps to focus on the constraints and develop practical solutions; successful production and marketing of crops act as a catalyst for participating farmers. The program focuses on improving production, grading and marketing skills.

First and continuing on, we will bring to the farmers extensive training and technical assistance in propagation, production, post-harvest and marketing activities by partnering with Meds & Foods for Kids and Technoserve. Set up a secure peanut seed storage room near Port de Paix, Haiti.

Second and continuing on, we will bring to the farmers good peanut seed that will grow well in this area by partnering with peanut seed producers such as the University of Florida, the University of Georgia and the American Peanut Council.

Third and continuing on, we will bring to the farmers the ability and knowledge for them to obtain equipment by developing farmer co-ops and partnering with equipment suppliers such as Tractors for Haiti.

On-going we will provide an opportunity to earn an income. Each person has certain abilities and talents that can be used. We want to interview persons to determine if we can assist them in creating a job opportunity for them. By providing a wheelbarrow, hand tools, garden tools, or perhaps even a truck, we can begin to place one more person into the workplace. We will do this by partnering with organizations such as Recycle Haiti (Ramaje Lajan) and Idejen.

We have started to develop relationships with all of the organizations mentioned above.
