WCHF awards scholarships to promising young Haitians in dentistry, agronomy, nursing, labor and delivery, construction and commercial truck and taxi driving. WCHF believes strongly that economic advancement begins with education. Since 2007 nearly 100 students have received WCHF Scholarships in Haiti and the USA.
WCHF provides leadership and entrepreneurship workshops in Haiti. Among other programs, WCHF is working with a group of 15 women from the Timo, Haiti community who are learning the principles of business development, including: business planning, marketing, sales skills, conflict resolution, accounting, and business analysis with modifications.
WCHF partners with Heifer International for animal husbandry. The program will increase the availability of domestic goat meat and milk to the local population and enhance the socio-economic well being of small producers through the improvement of the existing low-yielding goat production.
WCHF has recently completed building a Community Education Center which will demonstrate the following: a solar power system, catch water system (with cistern), goat breeding facilities, composting, a seedling nursery for 15,000 saplings (to supply our reforestation projects), a library for children. WCHF is also developing a tool lending program and community demonstration kitchen gardens.
