Planting Life Haiti, or Plante Lavi Ayiti in Haitian Creole, is a Christian non-profit foundation based in BC, Canada, whose aim is to collaborate with Haitian farmers to improve agricultural practices in Haiti, working towards a sustainable future. We provide resources, training, education, and support to farming communities, showing the love of Jesus through our acts of love and service.
We also lead Bible lessons for young children and teenagers, where we share the love and teachings of Jesus, encouraging people to accept Jesus as their saviour.
In our acts and words, we strive to honour Jesus and to make him known to others.
Our desire is to “plant life,” be it spiritual, agricultural, or educational. Through prayer, teaching, working, and serving, the Planting Life Haiti Foundation desires to help people see Jesus in everything we do.
