AFSC in Haiti

For several decades, AFSC operated a multi-faceted development program in the remote Grand’Anse region in southwest Haiti. In a rural area, we constructed the first health clinic to serve some 40,000 people, trained village health promoters, and conducted adult literacy classes. Economic endeavors included reforestation with fruit trees, providing equipment for fishing families, establishing cooperative stores to sell commodities at fair prices, and supporting the raising and proper care of indigenous Creole pigs and goats. AFSC turned these projects over to local leadership recently.
