Haiti is particularly vulnerable to climate change for several reasons: increased population density, deforestation, and soil erosion. This is due in part to socioeconomic factors that often interact with physical impacts.
Focus on Water
A.C.T. explores innovative models to enhance water availability, accessibility, and environmental renewal/protection. By focusing on viable solutions, we seek to address the multifaceted and wide-ranging challenges, which include: lack of integrated water management systems, inadequate investment in water and sanitation infrastructure, water affordability, and access to quality, safe water in rural and urban areas.
We believe that intergraded management of Haiti’s precious natural resources promote conditions that strengthen climate resiliency, creates livelihood opportunities, and expand long-term economic prospects for generations of Haitians.
A people who are self-aware, competent, and purposeful are best able to sustain a nation. A.C.T. seeks to empower Haitians by granting support to community-building projects aimed at emerging leadership development, public stewardship, and imparting a sense of responsibility in Haiti’s citizens.
Haiti has demonstrated a clear entrepreneurship spirit, but challenges have stunted the growth of this important economic sector. A.C.T. seeks to increase entrepreneurial productivity using efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable strategies to engage entrepreneurs as they revitalize their local communities.
