RISING UP / HURRICANE MATTHEW RESPONSE

Six months after the devastating Hurricane Matthew, we are facing a major challenge. Women farmers, suppliers of raw materials and ingredients to our partners, small and medium producers of hot pepper sauce, honey bee, herbal tea, hair products and other natural cosmetics and food for exports have been severely impacted by Hurricane Matthew in Southern communities.

We had to adopt a “two track plan”:  one to continue to promote growth through women access to export niche markets, and another one to contribute to restore agriculture capacity and production of 300 women farmers in Beaumont and Dame Marie.
