Fish4Life: Supporting Sustainable Fish Farming in Haiti

Commitment by

Michael A. Peterson Foundation

In 2013, Fish4life committed to support Caribbean Harvest so as to better help underserved Haitians in the Lake Azuei region by addressing both their nutritional and economic needs. Caribbean Harvest provides Haitian families with fish farming cages using environmentally friendly technology to produce both high quality fish and a stable work environment. Fish4Life will support Caribbean Harvest by engaging children from around the world to raise money for this program via its unique social network, mobile app, and marketing contest. Therefore, not only will Fish4Life be assisting in the improvement of Haitian livelihoods, but it will also be transforming children into valuable global citizens by informing them about critical development issues. In total, Fish4Life's commitment will expand the number of Caribbean Harvest program participants by 100 families.
