There is a serious deforestation
problem in Haiti and UCT is seeking to address this problem by
an extensive tree planting programme.
One of the trees that we are seeking
to establish is the Mauby tree. The bark can be used to produce
Mauby Syrup and UCT is in negotiation with a local Barbadian company
that specializes in this product and is keen to extend into Haiti.
Fruit trees will be planted especially
a special hybrid Miniature Golden Apple tree. This tree will be
vital for the success of the fruit pulp factory. It matures in
two years and with adequate irrigation produces fruit most of

Sericulture is also practiced on a very small scale in Guyana
while peace silk is reared in the Dominican Republic by an Origon
based cooperative. Barbados joined 200 plus years ago. This tactile
textile which has financed wars and influenced peace, provides
a baseline for an international high standard of living, is regarded
as an excellent alternative to agro-sustainability and provides
jobs and quality lifestyle enhancements. UCT is looking to work
in association with Mulburry Patch Inc to introduce sericulture
into Haiti as part of our Gender Initiative.

Moringa has great use medicinally
both as preventative and treatment. The Moringa or Miracle
tree prevents 300 diseases. One area in which there has

activity of this tree. The leaves contain all essential

Holiday Village' to house missionaries and church
youth groups visiting Haiti to help with the project.
There will also be the
potential for Student Exchange Holidays. As the children
of the Caribbean get more and more involved in the
Make Jesus Smile shoe box project they will become
more aware of the children of Haiti and the potential
for Student holidays at the Mission Holiday Village is

It is our aim to raise up Godly
leaders who will bring positive changes for the future of Haiti,
both naturally and spiritually, we feel that this programme will
have dynamic effects on the community and we plan to use Les Cayes
as the pilot project.
Other areas in Haiti have been
identified for similar projects and other areas in the Caribbean
have also been identified including Suriname and Guyana to the
south, Carriacou and the Carib Territory in Dominica and as far
north as Cuba and Jamaica.
Lands and personal have been identified
in some of these areas to take this project forward regionally.
