PAN AMERICAN DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION: Plant Nursery Workers in Haiti
PADF is strengthening the local Haitian organization SOHADERK (Haitian Solidarity for the Development of Kenscoff) to establish a coffee-based agroforestry system in Kenscoff. This agroforestry system will combat erosion and deforestation, and regenerate soil fertility. This project will also provide a source of income for the beneficiaries through coffee and fruit production. Currently, 12 people are employed in the plant nursery supporting this project, caring for 100,000 seedlings. SOHADERK also organizes training sessions for beneficiaries for build their capacity to manage their agroforestry plots.
