Ways to Serve

Agronomist

2 years or longer
Gressier, Haiti

The farming industry in Haiti has been undermined by many factors, including natural disaster, oppressive economic policies, and the breakdown of the family unit. Yet, there is great potential for agriculture to combat poverty, curtail malnutrition, unite communities, and bear witness to the holistic love of Christ. We want to assist in empowering Haitians to become self-supportive through the use of agriculture, available technology and resources, and farming cooperatives.
