Working toward a greater autonomy
Northern Haiti is probably one of the most fertile land areas in the entire country. Currently, people abandon their properties to go and live in the cities or move overseas. Our goal is to use the land at Jacob’s Well to encourage the village people to produce food for themselves so they can support themselves and also provide the local market the produce that is needed to feed the population. Currently, we have approximately 5,000 mango trees, 4,000 pineapples, 1,000 cocoa trees and other fruits and vegetables growing. Jacob’s Well ministry would like to invest further in agricultural production to include coffee. As we develop the agriculture on our property, we will provide a developmental model for people to follow, create jobs, save the environment and bring hope to people so they can stay in their village.
