REFORESTATION
HELPING HAITI GROW

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.

IN MEMORY

Mark Vallas

Today, we mourn the loss of Mark Vallas, son of our board member and dear friend Paul Vallas. Mark volunteered in Haiti with J/P HRO in 2012, where he supported education and after school programs as well as helped repair tents in the Petionville Camp. His endless energy and enthusiasm was contagious, and the J/P HRO team felt lucky to have him as a part of the family. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.
