Agricultural needs, can you help?

Agriculture in a sense is still practiced as if we were in the dark ages because of the inaccessibility of tools, seed, fertilizers, and adequate irrigation systems to assist the farmers. Having some backhoe loaders, tools, seeds, fertilizers, as well as an irrigation system to assist the farmers will bring much needed life to communities that are in dire need of help. Project 2000 International remains open to any other kind of help that anyone including corporations and foundations are able to offer as assistance for the betterment of the lives of the Haitian people.
Our challenge remains the acquisition of modern farming equipment, funding for fertilizer, seedlings, and an irrigation system for higher crop yield. Until we overcome these challenges with the infusion of funding, our crop yield will remain low and the effectiveness of the introduction of better farming methodology will be suppressed. Funding is needed in order to take the program to the next level. The approach has been proven; all that is now needed is the funding to roll out the next phase of implementation.
