More than half of Haiti’s population works in agriculture, yet Haiti relies on imports for half of its food needs and most of its energy resources. Heifer’s REACH program offers hope by strengthening the livelihoods of those who depend on livestock by building up four livestock subsectors — goats, cattle, poultry and pigs — and using integrated farming to improve production and strengthen links with buyers in the marketplace.
Through Heifer’s Passing on the Gift® concept, REACH will strengthen the economic resilience of more than 12,000 farming households over five years through community livestock.
