REACH: Rural Entrepreneurs for Ag Cooperation in Haiti

Commitment by

Heifer Project International

In 2011, Heifer International committed to supporting the reconstruction of Haiti's rural communities and strengthening the economic resiliency of 20,250 households over five years by developing their existing livestock micro-enterprises. Heifer International will build up four sub-sectors of livestock, specifically goats, cattle, poultry, and pigs. Heifer International will also develop 150 breeding centers and integrated farms in strategic regions and will train 120 Community Animal Health Workers, each of whom will then help train an average of 200 farmers. This work will not only increase food security and income for thousands of families, but also lead to the creation of 300 full-time jobs in the new breeding centers. With this commitment, Heifer International will ultimately strengthen social capital, support community building, and develop rural enterprises (co-ops) in Haiti.
