Impact of Planting Coffee Trees in Haiti

Haitian coffee seedling fundraiser

Your donation reforests Haiti w/ income-providing coffee trees and has BIG impact:

In 1923, 60% of Haiti was covered by lush forests; by 2006, less than 3% remained. Your donation allows #singingrooster to plant seedling nurseries that #reforestHaiti mountains with income-providing coffee trees.  Across the years, we’ve planted tens of thousands of trees in Haiti’s highest mountains / coffee lands:

  • Fond Jean Noel
  • Beaumont (the eye of Hurricane Matthew – TOTAL devastation)
  • Thiotte
  • Cahos/Artibonite
  • Dondon
  • Baptist

An Example: The Impact of $8000 (the perfect size nursery)

reforest Haiti mountains coffee
  • 32,000 income-providing trees for 20 years
  • over 640,000 pounds of coffee across lifespan of trees
  • over $2,200,000 directly into farmer pockets
  • soil stability, watersheds
  • protection of taller, old-growth trees (now bird habitats)
  • sustains thousands of jobs

Donate to our coffee seedling program today!  We’re appreciative. We’ll email you a tax deduction / donation receipt for your records.

Getting to and from coffee fields in Fonds Jean Noel takes good shoes (and endurance)

We KNOW agriculture is a great pathway to a self-sustaining Haiti.  Your commitment to drink Haitian coffee and eat Haitian chocolate seems like a simple solution – but we know it takes time and effort.

And we thank you. We also thank amazing people /companies who have been generous with our reforesting Haiti program:
