Economic Ways to Help Twin Parishes

Hen Project--Help residents of your twin parish community obtain hens to start an egg-selling business. You will have to choose who receives the hens. Sometimes this is a cooperative of residents in that town. E-Mail address for a parishioner connected with Coq Chante in the diocese of Jacmel, Haiti: Ken Firling at firlings@earthlink.net

Tree Project--Hire an agronomist for your twin parish. An agronomist can teach classes to local farmers to learn better ways of farming. They can learn to diversify their crops, plant tree breaks to improve the soil and protect their plants, and learn the benefits of growing crops for sale instead of cutting down trees for firewood. E-Mail address for a parishioner connected with Coq Chante in the diocese of Jacmel, Haiti: Ken Firling at firlings@earthlink.net
