UPCOMING TRIPS

We will be going back to Haiti in May. We were just there for 2 weeks and had a great trip. We had meetings with the people making brooms. This is a small, limited industry already established in Bas Pinal. It is a broom industry that has been going on for over 70 years. It just needs a boost to get it to the next level. The orphange is closed and the families of all the children that were in it are all involved in broom making. We met with 30 people from this village and found out how we can help them grow their business, increase their income,   And we are going to initiate help them on this trip. There are four things we are going to do:

1. Purchase more donkeys and horses so they don't have to carry the finished brooms on their heads to market.

2. Obtain seed so they can grow the plants used for broom making locally and not have to walk 10 hours or take a 3 day round-trip to get their plant material as they do now.

I3. Purchase a Diahatsu truck to help them carry more plant material home for making the brooms while we are waiting for the local plants to grow. 

4. Find funding for micro loans.
