Haiti - Economy : IOM helps hundreds of Haitians back from DR to have a small business
Those past few weeks, from Cap Haitien to Anse-à-Pîtres, through Ouanaminthe, Belladere, Port-au-Prince and Cornillon Grand Bois, migrants men and women trained in the management of Income Generating Activities (IGAs) have received their starter kit that will allow them to open up to empowerment !
Each distributed kit contains: a 25 kg bag of rice, a pea bag of 12.50 kg, a 25 kg bag of sugar, a 25 kg bag of maize, a 25 kg bag of flour, a can of oil of 10 Liters, a box of herrings, a case of bouillon-cube of chicken, a box of milk, butter, packets of spaghetti, cans of concentrated tomatoes and 5 kg of garlic.
A total of 700 adults will benefit from this vocational training and support for the creation of small businesses through income-generating micro projects. To date, 195 men and 387 women have already received this training.
These activities are put in place thanks to the generous support of the Government of Canada and the field work of our partner CAPAC (Centre d'Animation Paysanne et d'Action Communautaire).
