Working to Make Haiti Whole Again
Survival and Development
MANJE AK TI KOZE
People shouldn't be expected to work on an empty stomach, but since many Haitians live on less that $5 a day, it is important that KOSSSA takes the initiative to feed the people monthly. Then, we talk with the people and determine how we can work together to uplift the community.
Haiti has a predominantly agricultural economy, and women constitute over half of the population. So, it is important that women engage in agronomy in order to sustain and develop the nation. KOSSSA recognizes this and organizes with women to be the vanguard of agricultural and reforestation projects.
KOSSSA envisions a bright future for Haiti, and, since over half of the population in Haiti is younger that 25 years old, it is important that we focus on youth development. Our youth camps serve to engage youth in Haitian history, culture, and law, so they can become responsible citizens and effective leaders.
Haiti is a nation populated by well over 10 million people, and many of those people can't access adequate healthcare services, either because the infrastructure makes hospital visits unmanageable or because many citizens simply can't afford it. So, KOSSSA works with Haitian doctors trained in Cuba, Venezuela, and Mexico, to serve the needs of the people where they are.
"No person, who is not a good father, good son, good husband, and a good soldier, is worthy of being a Haitian."
Revolutionary Constitution of Haiti, 1805
