Helping Hands Noramise has been on the ground in Haiti since 2010. We’ve worked on nutrition education, public health and sanitation initiatives and school gardens.
As a grassroots organization it has been challenging for us to provide resources for these projects, despite the great need for them.
In the interest of making the best use of our resources and making greater impact, we’ve partnered with TeahHaiti to focus on Nutrition education and school gardens in two areas. On2e school is in the capital city Port-au-Prince, the other in the rural town of St Michel de L’atalaye.
We have also partnered with the Orcas Island Farm to Classroom program, on Orcas Island, WA
These two collaborations will provide a pathway for a cultural exchange between Haitian and American students.
The students will not only share garden practices, but also hold regular video calls to discuss the various challenges they face and work together towards their solutions.
