Deforestation is a very serious, present-day issue affecting the people and the environment of Haiti.
Deforestation degrades soil, making it poor for farming, and causes a massive loss of species and biodiversity, as well as soil erosion and mudslides.
World Renew invites you to change the story of deforestation by working alongside the community in Pignon, Haiti, on a reforestation project!
This community-driven initiative combats deforestation through education and action.
Through education, the reforestation project strives to educate the community on the dangers of slash-and-burn farming and the importance of protecting and planting trees and other vegetation.
Through action, the reforestation project strives to reduce food insecurity and provide income for families by growing fruit trees and vegetables in community gardens.
