Long Business Description:

Fighting poverty through entrepreneurship

At Agrisud, we do not accept the idea that today almost one billion and a half of individuals are living in poverty and are often experiencing great difficulties to feed themselves daily.

It is well known in the South as in the North that poverty is caused especially by economic exclusion, which gradually leads to social exclusion. We are now convinced that one way of resolving this situation is to help those people back into the economy. How? By helping them become entrepreneurs

Long Business Description:

Emergency Architects:
Building Walls for Rebuilding Lives!
The need for a roof and deliver as quickly as possible in operation care centers, schools and public buildings are of absolute importance after a disaster.

Since 2001, through its action programs around the world the Emergency Architects Foundation (UAF) has demonstrated that assistance to people in distress can not be limited only to providing food and care: rebuilding lives broken, but also allow the poor to find decent living conditions as soon as possible.

Its purpose is to provide advice and assistance to populations affected by natural disasters, technological or human, and more generally, in this context, to provide assistance to anyone in a state of physical or mental distress in France and abroad. It also participates in discussions conducted after any disaster, and can, by his interest in cultural heritage, intervene under heritage protection missions.
Representations of Emergency Architects in Canada (Montreal) and Switzerland (Geneva) were created to extend the action network.

Association Arche d’Haïti (AAH)
Address: 35, Rue Rigaud, Petion-Ville, Haïti
Business Genre:
Long Business Description:

En 1975, Monsieur Cantave, alors ambassadeur d’Haïti au Canada, invite Jean Vanier, fils de l’Honorable Georges Vanier, gouverneur général du Canada de 1959 à 1967, à venir fonder une communauté de L’Arche en Haïti.

Dès l’origine, les Haïtiens prennent en main la fondation de L’Arche sur l’île.

Le 8 juillet, quelques mois après une première visite de Jean Vanier en Haïti, le premier foyer ”Kay Sen Josèf” ouvre ses portes en accueillant Jean-Robert Bélizaire qui devient ainsi l’un des fondateurs de L’Arche Haïti.

Jacqueline et Jean-Robert

De 1975 à 1978, Jean Vanier vient 3 fois par année en Haïti. Comme il était arrivé en France lors de la fondation de la toute première communauté de L’Arche en 1964, de nombreux jeunes attirés par le leadership de Jean Vanier fréquentent L’Arche Carrefour. Parmi ces jeunes, il y a Jaqueline Sanon, actuelle directrice de la communauté.

En 1978, L’Arche est invitée dans le village de Chantal à 180km au sud-ouest de Port-au-Prince. L’Arche Chantal institue alors un programme de visites à domicile pour apporter aide et soutien aux familles ayant un enfant touché par un handicap mental. La communauté de Chantal voit le jour en 1980.

Avec le même objectif, L’Arche Carrefour fonde ensuite l’école Kè Konten dans le but de créer un service permettant la prise en charge du développement d’enfants souffrant d’un handicap mental.

L’Arche Haïti est membre de la Fédération internationale de L’Arche qui compte aujourd’hui plus de 139 communautés dans 35 pays.

Le 12 janvier 2010, au moment du tremblement de terre, L’Arche Carrefour était très insérée dans son milieu. La peur du handicap mental s’était largement estompée pour laisser place au respect et à l’amitié. De nombreuses personnes du voisinage ont trouvé à L’Arche un abri sécuritaire durant les longs mois qui ont suivi cette terrible catastrophe.

Après avoir vu ses bâtiments détruits, la communauté de Carrefour inaugurait ses nouveaux locaux, le 13 mars 2011, grâce à la générosité et la solidarité de nombreux donateurs et donatrices.
