Asosyasyon Peyizan Fondwa (APF)
Long Business Description

APF (The Association of the Peasants of Fondwa) is national NGO of Haiti focused on grassroots development and empowerment in rural communities. APF aims to provide tools and resources that allow peasants to pull themselves out of poverty.

Over the past 25 years, APF has worked in the village of Fondwa and surrounding communities to develop clean drinking water, a road connecting hard to reach villages, a primary and secondary school, health clinic, radio station, credit union, and guest house.

In 2004, the University of Fondwa (UNIF) was established. As the only university in all of rural Haiti, UNIF provides higher education to students coming from extremely remote areas. UNIF students return to their home communities throughout their course of study to share their knowledge of agronomy, business management, and veterinary medicine.

On January 12, 2010, most of the infrastructure built by APF was destroyed, and Fondwa suffered many losses. However, the APF community is hopeful for the future. Since 2010, the APF has remobilized, and is using the resources and partnerships available to us to rebuild and restore all that had been lost.

We have constructed a temporary university for the students, and have converted shipping containers into dormitories. We are now process of rebuilding our primary school, Saint Antoine. Please explore the different photo albums in the gallery to view our progress.

All of our programs are based in Fondwa, however our headquarters are based in Port-au-Prince.

Fondwa is a small community village in the western province of Haiti between Léogane and Jacmel. It is the 10th Communal Section of Léogane and about 30 minutes apart from Jacmel and Léogane. Fondwa is 80 kilometers from Port-au-Prince, a 2 hour-drive. The region has a total area of 28 square kilometers and a population of 8,000 people. Fondwa is a mountainous region and more than 80% of the population is peasants. More than 50% of the population is less than 20 years old. There are 6 other rural communities which benefit from the work of APF, about 50,000 individuals all together.

CARE (Cooperation for American Relief Everywhere)
Long Business Description

CARE was founded in 1945 when 22 American organizations came together to rush lifesaving CARE Packages to survivors of World War II. Thousands of Americans, including President Harry S. Truman, contributed to the effort. On May 11, 1946, the first 15,000 packages reached the battered port of Le Havre, France.

These early packages were U.S. Army surplus “10-in-1” food parcels intended to provide one meal for 10 soldiers during the planned invasion of Japan. We obtained them at the end of the war and began a service that let Americans send the packages to friends and families in Europe, where millions were in danger of starvation. Ten dollars bought a CARE Package and guaranteed that its addressee would receive it within four months.
