Supporting education and innovation in agricultural development.
FIDA recognizes that a business model is not sustainable when the majority of the participants are illiterate. We developed a comprehensive adult literacy program incorporating scenarios of rural life in Haiti to ground the learning for Haitian farmers.
Haiti is a country steeped in centuries of cultural fear and mistrust. Although an independent republic since 1804, Haitians have yet to experience the trust that enables productivity through cooperation.
Hike for Haiti
Experience the incredible natural and cultural beauty of Haitian countryside on our annual Hike for Haiti. Our week together includes a two-day, 24-mile hike through the southern mountains of the country and opportunities to explore the work of FIDA-pch with visits to projects.
What sets FIDA apart from other organizations.
While there are thousands of international organizations present in Haiti doing good work, much of the activity has created a sustained dependence on foreign intervention to provide health care, education, food, and relief work when natural disasters occur. FIDA-pcH is a registered Haitian not-for-profit and maintains an all-Haitian staff team.
