HOPE NEWSLETTER

Borgne
Borgne is located on the northern coast of Haiti, 35 miles West of Cap Haitien a 2-hour ride in
good weather. H.O.P.E. serves over 40,000 people in the town of Borgne and its seven rural districts. The lack of basic, functioning, infrastructures such as communication, sanitation, health care, water distribution, and transportation coupled with a very high rate of unemployment are the major causes of poverty in the region. Agriculture and fishing have traditionally been the sources of subsistence for people in the area. However., erosion, over-farming and over-fishing, as well as high population density have greatly reduced outputs. As a result, easily treated conditions such as malnutrition, malaria, tuberculosis, parasitic diseases are continuing problems and maternal and infant mortality rates are high.

 

H.O.P.E. supports community development in Borgne by cooperating with local grassroots community organizations on a variety of projects. These projects seek to promote empowerment and ensure sustainability through education, training, and economic development.
