As climate change threatens the world, Haiti is a model for a potential reforestation program. Because of colonial, economic, and social factors, Haiti has gone from 80% forested to under 20% over the past 200 years. Reforesting sustainably will require alternative job creation, as many rely on cutting down trees and turning them into fuel as their primary source of income. In partnership with the Haitian National Government, and other organizations in the space, J/P HRO is working to reforest as much of the areas we work in as possible, beginning with empty and relocated camps. Eventually, J/P HRO will advocate for this movement nationally, as we learn and grow into a major contributor in this critical effort.
J/P HRO’s work in community health is focused on preventative medicine through women’s health, dental care, screening services, and health education.READ MORE
