New Skills and Resources Empower Haitian Farmers

Nine farmers employed by the iF Foundation traveled to Camp Perrin for specialized training in grafting and minisetting. These techniques along with access to farm credit and continued technical support are empowering local farmers in northern Haiti to work even harder with the hope of a brighter future for their families. In addition, the farmers agree that the advanced training and opportunity offer hope for the future of the region, not just for themselves personally. They hope to set an example for the country, demonstrating that dedication and commitment can lead to major benefits for the economy. In this phase of the program, the farmers are focusing on planting mango seeds at the new iF Foundation nursery, grafting mango trees on their own small landholder farms and growing yams using the minisetting technique.
