Farming Programs in Haiti
Currently, farming in Haiti is in crisis and is facing the greatest decline ever. Less than 2% of the Haitian population is involved in farming, and the number of farming land is statistically insignificant to feed 9 Million people.
The bleak outlook for earning a good living by farming is discouraging to the younger generation. With increasing costs of their daily living, lack of water supply, no marketing outlets, many farmers find themselves abandoning their farms and become vagrant in Haitian cities and urban areas.
Eighty-nine percent of all Haitian consumption is imported. The country now lacks basic commodities like, rice, wheat, corn and peas. Seventy-five percent of the population goes to bed hungry every day and 85% of Haitian infants eat on average one good meal per week. Without food support from the United States, Canada and the European Union, Haiti would have been placed under complete humanitarian chaos.
In Haiti, there is an absence of Agro-incentive from both private sectors and the government. There is a national sentiment that no one a sense or awareness of where and how food is grown, and a lack of understanding of how unhealthy food choices lead to health problems.
