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

As many of you already know – God blessed our family with the call to serve in Haiti in October of 2001. For 9 years, we faithfully coordinated the fundraising for building schools, but always had a vision of being involved more “hands on.” Patience, He said.
In February of 2010, God opened doors to this vision and in June of 2010 our first “group mission trip” was under way bearing the name of our newly instituted organization, Hands for Haiti!! During this entire process, the support and encouragement from family and friends was overwhelming and God’s willingness to guide and challenge us was amazing. We have learning so many lessons along the way.
We love the people of Haiti and we love Christ’s teaching about helping the poor. Seeing common everyday people working alongside the Haitian people and, despite language and culture differences, building relationships is awesome. Wow – this is Christ’s love outpouring on a whole new level and it is beautiful to witness.
St. Francis of Assisi says,“Preach the Gospel at all times, use words if necessary.” The most powerful witness we can be is by living the Gospel and loving and serving as Jesus did. One of the ways we can do this is by using our "Hands for Haiti."
