They say money does not grow on trees, but did you know a whole community can? Haiti is in the midst of an unprecedented political, economic and social crisis, but there are one million smallholder farmers in the country (with husbands and wives farming together on half a million farms) ready to be part of the solution. What's missing? Trees.
With the help of these generous donors, we have more than 7.5 million trees. They have earned their income from their families. And by implementing much of agricultural and community services themselves, with the SFA's supervision, participating farmers themselves become independent and operate the programs themselves.
