Some Details

The Haiti Goat Project is an agriculture development project that operates as a collaborative effort with the Christianville Foundation Haiti, a non-governmental organization that operates in Gressier, Haiti.
 

      The primary project location is in Gressier Haiti, located about 18 miles west of  Port-au-Prince, with additional project activities in  the local communities of Jean-Jean,  Ti-Cousin and Ti-Boukan. 


The  majority of children in the Gressier and surrounding areas suffer from malnutrition because their diets, consisting of  primarily of  plant-based foods, are extremely limited by financial, educational and  social constraints. 
 

      Because animal source foods contain a high density of balanced, highly digestible proteins and essential micronutrients, these foods are an integral component of a nutritious diet.  


The goals  of the Haiti Goat Project are to:  


  • Provide high quality nutrition in the form of Chili Kabrit, a goat-meat & vegetable-based meal, that is served to Haitian children through school-based lunch programs
  • Create an economic driver to promote the establishment of sustainable agriculture in Haitian communities
  • Improve the genetic background of Haitian goats and provide training in livestock management to support Haitian agriculture producers
