Commitment by

Caribbean Harvest Foundation

In 2010, Caribbean Harvest committed to combat poverty and improve nutrition and education in rural areas of Haiti through the promotion of intensive fish cage culture, one of the most viable options available to quickly restore relative prosperity to small fish farmers. Over the next two years, 350 small farmers will receive production units and training enabling them to raise their income level from $400 to more than $2,000 a year while improving nutrition for over a million people.
