Help this Rally grow by simply liking it:
College students, industry professionals, and local Haitians are teaming with Hands of Light in Action to implement small-scale gardens with the most efficient and sustainable designs available in 3 rural villages, eventually offering maximal nutritional, educational, and economical output. Our Haitian volunteers will be trained for long term agricultural management, and will act as the true seeds planted in these impoverished villages. This internal support system will sprout the success Haiti needs.
Hands of Light in Action’s philosophy is to “Assist people in need,” but does so with individualized and direct approaches. Volunteers live with the villagers to understand their lifestyle, so that comprehension occurs before action. This is the strategy for Operation: Seeds of Light. Combining the expertise of specialists in mycology, permaculture, aquaponics, water filtration, sports, and medicine, HOLIA seeks to create of synergistic ecosystem of flourishing growth.
Funds are badly needed for basic supplies for gardens and sustainable food sourcing, purchasing soccer balls, buying medical supplies, and hiring Haitian leaders to manage these community programs. This plans can become a reality, and the framework for its success can then be applied to other parts of the world. We are all Hands, we all offer Light, and we must all take Action.
