LIGHT THE FIRE

AGRICULTURE & BUSINESS

"As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."

John 9:5

The people of Boukeron go to bed every night hungry. Rather than satisfying their hunger for one night, we strive to find sustainable solutions for the crisis. Continuous research is made to invest in the most efficient and successful methods of improving agriculture and business. 

A goat husbandry program was started in 2012, providing numerous families with a source of income and nutrition from the milk. The program continues to grow independently through the offspring. Most farmers cannot afford any tools, using their bare hands to grow their crops. By providing farming tools, from the basic shovel to a tractor, their productivity and incomes will increase drastically.

If you have any ideas on helping the agriculture/business sector, we would love to hear from you! Just email us at haitianrelations@teensave.org 

We hope that one day we will see fires lit all over Boukeron as people cook an abundance of food.
