Chinese Cabbage, School Garden, Haiti

As mentioned in last report, this GlobalGiving project has been fully funded. We are so very thankful for good people like you who made this happen! The vegetable seeds you helped send to Haiti have been received, and some have been planted in school gardens and homes. More on that in a moment, but first . .  .

. . . did you enjoy supporting our work via GlobalGiving, and seeing your charitable giving provide seeds and training so that a next generation facing great odds in Haiti can become healthy and self-sufficient? If you did, please consider making a further tax-deductible donation to Seed Programs International. We've posted a new project, supporting a partnership in Honduras. Learn more and give here: www.globalgiving.org/projects/seeds-for-honduras/. Thank you!

Dear Supporters,

We're still in the fundraising (with your help!) and planning stage for this project in Honduras, so we can't yet bring you the stories and outcomes from the field that will eventually emerge.

In the meantime, here's an interesting profile of the farmer group in Honduras who would receive the seeds: http://www.ccic.ca/_files/en/working_groups/003_food_2009-03_case_study_honduras.pdf

Dear Friend of Seed Programs International,

This project is now fully funded! We've launched a second GlobalGiving project, found here: http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/seeds-for-honduras/, for those interested in charitable holiday giving or just eager to help support further deserving vegetable seed projects.

Back to Haiti: the shipment of four cartons of seeds only made possible by your support left East Rochester, New York for Hollywood, Florida last week. This week they will travel by air the short hop to Cap-Haitien via our friends at http://www.shipcasco.com/shiphaiti.htm who provide excellent and affordable service.

Dear Supporter of Seed Programs International,

Thank you so much for your gift earlier this month. This is our first report.

Project Update

With monies raised we are able to go forward in Haiti. Our partner, AyitiKonseVet, directed by June Levinsohn in Vermont, believes in partnership and works closely with others. AKV's agronomist Wedly Deceus is currently consulting with Renel Bruno of Initiative pour le Development Durable d'Haiti (IDDH) and Leneus Joseph with La Pliade. These three groups are able to, together, reach a broad area of north Haiti.
