Green Haiti, Inc.
Green Haiti based in New York City, is a registered 501(c)(3) Not-for-Profit organization, created by a group of Haitian medical professionals. For several years they have been traveling to Haiti and other countries during their off time providing free healthcare. In doing so, they realized that free healthcare was not enough. The environment is what was making people sick. Therefore, they decided to approach the problem at its source. With other Haitian professionals, these doctors started Green Haiti and over the past three years, we have helped start a farmers coop (association des planteurs de mango de Leogane) that has supported the planting of over 50,000 mango trees in Leogane. As an organization, we are looking to replicate their success all throughout Haiti.
