We have trained over 250 rural Haitian farmers, may of them women, through our church-based Farmer Field Schools. We provide them with seed, fertilizer, and weekly agricultural training. The result is a dramatic increase in the quantity, quality and variety of food placed on the family dinner tables each day. Thanks to these Farmer Field Schools over 2,000 Haitian children and adults now experience the security that comes with knowing where their next meal will come from. The local church also sees increase as the farmers are also being taught biblical stewardship.
Woodlands Church has provided medical care to over 2,000 patients in the rural community through a medical clinic established at the local church up in the mountains. Along with diagnosing and treating immediate needs, we are teaching the local residents basic hygiene, first aid and nutrition skills to improve the overall health of the community.
In partnership with local Haitian churches, we have provided care and Christ based education to over 35 orphaned children and a school of 400 students from Kindergarten to 8th grade. These children are learning and growing with a foundation in Christ and a strong academic background.
