Newsletter February 2023


We are beyond grateful for your unwavering interest and dedication to our various projects aimed at eradicating poverty and social disparities in the communities we operate in. Our dream is to create a world where every individual has the opportunity to receive and cultivate the same values, with a shared commitment to collective well-being. We know that this is no easy task, but with your support and the spirit of service that guides us, we are confident that we will succeed.

We want to take a moment to express our heartfelt appreciation for all your aid and donations, no matter how big or small. Your generosity allows us to envision a brighter future with optimism, and to make a real and lasting impact in our communities.

In Haiti, life has been anything but certain, with no one being able to testify to days without ambiguity or confusion since the start of 2022. Despite these challenging circumstances, the HCDF has made significant strides in education, agriculture, and more. Our pupils have excelled in their studies, and we are proud of the quality education we are providing.


Education


February was a month of celebration for many Haitians, as carnival activities took place across the country. During this time, our students were on leave, but we are thrilled to welcome back the P4H team, who will continue to support our teachers in the classroom. Secondary section exams have been completed, and we are pleased with the results. Primary section exams will take place in March, and we are optimistic that our students will perform well.

In addition to education, we have launched several other exciting activities, including interclass football championships and reading competitions. The grand finals will take place on Labor and Agriculture Day, as well as Haitian Flag Day, with other contests and games to follow throughout the quarter.




Farm

Despite the country's unstable socio-political situation, agriculture remains a crucial sector for the development of rural communities and the source of income for many. Our focus is on mechanizing land use and agro-food processing while also supporting local farmers. Jubilee Farm continues to make impressive progress, even in the face of drought. With an estimated 55 hectares of irrigated cultivated land for black beans and 30 hundredths for corn, the gardens are flourishing thanks to modern technology. We are excited to transplant various plant species, including tomato, eggplant, pepper, and cabbage, in specific areas. Additionally, the farm supports job creation and provides daily meals for our students.





We are working tirelessly to create favorable conditions for the development of Fond-des-Blancs, and we cannot thank you enough for your continued support.


May the God of justice, peace, reconciliation, and love challenge, protect, and guide you every day. Together, we can make a real difference and bring positive change to those in need.
