Aquaculture

Aquaculture in Haiti has the potential to provide a sustainable food source for the high number of individuals who are extremely food insecure.

Biodigesters

Those living in developing countries often do not have a proper way to dispose and treat human waste, leading to rampant spread of diseases such as cholera. In Haiti, most people openly defecate or use pit latrines. Because of this, fecal matter contaminates the water supply. Biodigesters provide a way to sustainably treat waste and prevent disease. They retain and break down solid waste through anaerobic digestion and then release methane and a nutrient-rich effluent.
