Heart to Heart International is pioneering sustainable development in Southeast Haiti in their Federation model. The Federation is the collaboration of individuals from various “sectors” of the larger community. These sectors include the religious, business, medical, educational, agricultural, and other spheres of life in the the Haitian cultural community.
In Mapou the federation is comprised of around 15 individuals. The Federation is in the process of doing an ethnographic study of their local community while simultaneously developing their own leadership abilities in areas of conflict management, financial literacy, and ingenuity. After the completion of their training, they will identify core projects within Mapou that will best improve their preferred future for all generations of the community.
