Brief report on the activities realized by Nouveau Kiskeya with funding from HDN in Northwest Haiti during 2023
With the funding Nouveau Kiskeya received from HDN in 2023, we were able to accomplish the following:
Rehabilitation of 8 kilometers of road from the Jean-Rabel/Port-de-Paix road to Nouveau Kiskeya.
The rehabilitated road serves both NK and the seaside village of Port-à-l’Ecu.
The canal, which is 1 meter deep and 1.5 meter wide, was dug by hand. About 400 workers were hired to dig the canal.
The water carried by the canal is currently used to irrigate plots for 80 households. Whereas the land being irrigated was dry land that barely produced a little bit of crops every one, two, or three years, that land is now producing food continuously to the 80 households. Our goal is to expand the project so that more households may benefit from it.
About 80 workers were hired to work in soil preparation for the farming project.
Construction of a building that is currently housing a well system that will provide both drinking and irrigation water for about ten thousand people.
The pumping system has been installed on the well and the pipes that will be used to deliver the water over a distance of 10 kilometers have been acquired and transported on site, waiting to be installed. About 125 workers were hired in the construction of the well system.
Realization of an experimental chicken farm
