2020 – GADRU

By |2020-12-14T17:28:43-05:0011 September 2020|

Project Description

Families living in Grosse-Roche in Haiti’s North East department face diminishing forest cover, poor soil quality, and a lack of agricultural supplies, hampering their ability to produce food and exacerbating malnutrition and hunger risks. The IAF supports community-led solutions to expand economic opportunities through sustainable agriculture and micro-enterprises. Our grantee partner, Groupe d’Appui au Développement Rural (GADRU), provides training in sustainable agriculture, livestock production, and business development for 500 families from the community-based organization Association des Familles Agro-écologiques de Grosse-Roche. It also maintains a seed bank and distributes seedlings, and its participants are distributing their livestock’s offspring to other families as their herds grow. These strategic investments increase farmers’ food security and incomes.
