Restore trees and the Haitian people’s hope for the future.
Haiti has lost 95% of its tree canopy, which has had devastating effects on the local environment. Most notably, the region’s fertile topsoil has been washed away. Locals now struggle to produce sufficient food for their families. Communities have identified reforestation as the primary need of the region.
Quixote Center (QC)approaches this issue with the long term health of the region in mind.Residents are taught the role trees play in the environment, including their impact on agriculture. Their strategy also includes caring for several tree nurseries, planting trees, distributing seedlings to local residents and schools, caring for a model forest, and training local students and farmers in sustainable agricultural techniques.
