Reviving the KPP Breeding of Small Ruminants Project
Thanks to a $1500.00 donation from the One World Group Oxted of London, the KPP-Haiti’s Breeding of Small Ruminants Project, which had been decimated by Hurricane Matthew, is being revived, this time in the village of Nanma.
Nanma is a small, poor village of the commune, about 2 hours walking distance from the town of Port-a-Piment. The KPP team in Haiti brought awareness of the desperate conditions that the residents of Nanma were lfacing after Matthew.
As done in the past, 10 families were chosen to become the beneficiaries of the project as owners of 2 female goats each. The project will follow the same principle of “Receive and Give” used previously in the villages of Dupin and Pinette. It is expected that these beneficiaries will in turn become the donors to other families in the village as the program extends its reach.
Konbit Pou Potapiman Inc expresses its gratitude to One World Group Oxted for allowing its sister organization, KPP-Haiti, the opportunity to continue this project.
Agricultural project update
The farmers in the villages of Jabouin and Pinette reported that despite the heavy rains of the last few months, their harvest of corn was relatively good. The farmers were able to sell their products and reserve enough seeds for replanting.them.
In Jabouin, the farmers are grateful for the recent rains and milder temperatures. The fields of Pigeon Peas (Pwa Kongo) visited by the KPP monitor look promising. If the present weather pattern holds, the farmers expect to rake in a very good harvest by the end of January.
Again KPP thanks all contributors who responded to our call in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. Please continue to support KPP. Your contributions are making a difference in the lives of so many.
