Haiti Hope Project

In the wake of Haiti’s catastrophic earthquake, TechnoServe is partnering with The Coca-Cola Company on the Haiti Hope Project, whose objective is to create a sustainable Haitian mango industry and play a role in the nation’s long-term recovery efforts. TechnoServe will help Haitian mango farmers grow their crops more efficiently, produce additional crops to boost their incomes and create businesses allowing them to access markets sustainably.

A variety of donors including The Coca-Cola Company, the Inter-American Development Bank, the U.S. Agency for International Development and the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund have come together to make this five-year project possible. Haiti Hope seeks to double the income of 250,000 Haitian mango farmers while contributing to Haiti’s long-term development and revitalization. The project will also improve the participation of women in fruit production and develop opportunities for entrepreneurs to establish value-adding businesses in the Haitian mango sector.
