Betsy Wall | Rotary Club of Waterloo {March 7th 2013}

 In Guest Speakers

Betsy Wall is a member of the Rotary Club of Waterloo and will talk about her family’s work to sustainably address hunger and poverty in Haiti through the agricultural cooperative model.

FIDA has actively been promoting the productive agricultural cooperative model in Haiti since 1984. This model is viewed as the most appropriate when addressing the economic issues of poverty, and given a context wherein the country lacks political will, national infrastructure, and general security. FIDA, along with its working arm in Haiti, productive cooperatives Haiti (pcH), has received global acclaim for an effective adherence to the participatory approach when undertaking sustainable development activities, particularly among the rural poor.
