Commitment to Action

Regenerating Rural Communities in Haiti

Commitment by

Groundswell International

In 2011, Groundswell and its Haitian partner, Partenariat pour le Développement Local (PDL), committed to scale its programs which regenerate rural communities in Haiti. Specifically, the partners will build strong farmers' organizations that will spread agro-ecological farming methods to restore soils and improve food production, mobilize savings-led microfinance, and improve community health. Currently, Groundswell and PDL support nine farmers' organizations and the goal is to strengthen an additional eleven over five years, thereby improving the wellbeing of 20,000 families, of which 10,000 families will increase food production by 75%, increase income by 50%, and will gain access to savings-led microfinance.
