Here, the Haiti Hope Project takes shape as farmers are enrolled and taught harvest management techniques. These skills will enable them to use their mango trees as a source of sustainable income for their families.

Over the next five years, the Haiti Hope Project will train 25,000 mango farmers and help market their mangoes for the highest possible selling price.

Together, the efforts of TechnoServe and its public and private partners will help Haitian communities rebuild and create a better future.
