An update on the agricultural project in Jabouin, Port-a-Piment

The agricultural project in Jabouin continues to move forward. Over 10 acres of land planted in corn and beans are progressing as expected despite the heavy rainfalls that the commune of Port-a-Piment has endured in the last few weeks.


Harvest is expected to start by the end of next month. As a result, the markets in the town of Port-a-Piment and surrounding areas will have food to trade and food for families to consume.The residents of the village of Jabouin are all excited and hopeful of better days. KPP will continue to monitor and advise the peasants to ensure sustainability in managing the fruit of their efforts.

We are pleased to extend our gratitude to all of those who responded to our appeal. Your contributions are making a huge difference in the lives of many in the commune of Port-a-Piment. We will continue to provide updates as we move forward. Please contribute as generously as you can.Donate


A recreational program for seniors in Port-a-Piment.

Recognizing the need for seniors to engage in meaningful activities Mrs. Danie Lubin, a Massachusetts resident and a native of Port-a-Piment, inaugurated a recreational program (La Vi Pa Nou) last April 5th, 2017 in Port-a-Piment, Haiti.  The program runs two days a week and offers opportunities for the elderly aged 65 and over to engage in meaningful activities to enhance their personal well being, challenge ageism and celebrate the wisdom and experience of age.

Danie is not new to this type of activities; last summer she held a summer camp for the elderly which was very successful. This year and especially after the devastating hurricane, Danie doubled her efforts to pay special attention to the seniors of her lovely town. More than 20 seniors are registered members of the program. They meet every Wednesday and Friday from 9 AM to 2 PM.

The program is run by Mrs. Joacine LouisJean . To meet the challenges ahead, Danie needs the cooperation and help of her fellow portapimentais and friends.  She can be reached via email at

We wish Danie much success.
