KPP Agricultural Jabouin project

12-13-2016.-As part of KPP’s commitment to help the commune of Port-a-Piment face a scarcity of food in the coming months, we initiated the agricultural Jabouin Project. Jabouin is a small village located at approximately 2 hours walking distance from the town of Port-a-Piment. Jabouin is known for its wide range of fertile land. Hurricane Matthew of last October dealt a devastating blow to the agricultural life of the village and its inhabitants. Its 92 family homes were destroyed; all crops and animals were wiped out.

The project aims to avert or minimize the shortage of food that will happen if no action is taken..

In Jabouin, KPP representatives met a number of peasants/ land owners willing to work together to reconstruct their lives, their community and to contribute to the other communes in the area. Accompanied by an agricultural expert, KPP members held meetings with more than 60 peasants and land owners. The peasants expressed their concerns which mainly centered on the fact that their fields were destroyed and they now lack the means to start over. A decision was made to grow corn and beans.Using the Konbit concept where all will work a tract of land before moving to the next one; the peasants are now cleaning their fields (a total of about 10 acres of land) which soon will be ready for planting.

 

Seeds and fertilizer will be provided by KPP under the supervision of the local agronomist.  The peasants are hoping for a harvest in the next 4 to 5 months.

We thank each and everyone of you who contributed to make this project a reality. Please follow us online via www.portapiment.com  for more updates.
