In the midst of another devastation in Haiti after a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck near Les Cayes, Jérémie and other areas of Southwest Haiti, there is a ray of hope!!!
Since 2011, Trees That Feed Foundation (TTFF) has worked closely with organizations and individuals in the affected areas of Haiti, primarily in planting breadfruit trees and creating breadfruit by-products. Their local partners, Jérémie Breadfruit Flour and Nursery (JBFN), produces breadfruit flour, breadfruit konparèts (a nutritious biscuit made with breadfruit flour), breadfruit breads and fruit tree seedlings. JBFN producesthousands of konparèts every month for schools and orphanages supported by TTFF, as well as other customers. They also empower women by offering cooking classes using breadfruit flour and encouraging them to become entrepreneurs and start their own business.
