It has been a severe dry season in rural Haiti, where Hope for Haiti partners with two communities as models of holistic development. In an area where 60 percent of households live in extreme poverty, small-scale agriculture is the largest form of work.
“We have been waiting for the rains to come before planting the fields,” noted local resident Marguerith Borsa. “Last season’s banana, rice and corn plants have all dried up.”

A seventy-one year old beekeeper, Gustave Sully, reflected on the problem. “The land just doesn’t produce right now.”
The drought has had a real impact. One partner school director noted that an estimated 30 percent of students have not been able to pay their full tuition. And a community well, the only source of potable water in this area, has completely dried up.<< MORE >>
