Who We Help

We work to empower rural Haitians to improve their livelihoods.

We currently target our work in the two 3Legs Communities (Medor and Sarrazins) with the goal of expanding the 3Legs program to many new communities in the coming years.

We help:

  • Local rural Haitian communities get organized in order to improve living conditions and increase wealth.
  • Qualified rural high school school graduates by providing university scholarships so they can earn degrees in agronomy, veterinary medicine, business, and other fields of study with the promise to return to their communities as professionals and assist in local wealth creation.
  • Farmers who participate in the Smallholder Farmers Alliance’s Tree Currency Program, tending trees in the tree nursery, transplanting them on the mountainsides, earning “tree credits” that can be redeemed for agricultural training, crop seeds, farming tools and livestock, increasing their income an average of 50%. 
  • Women from farm families by providing microcredit loans for small businesses, increasing family income.
  • U.S based leaders and community leaders looking for proven, effective ways to participate in agricultural based grassroots community development efforts.
