Haiti Reforestation Programme - Stage #1



United Caribbean Trust (UCT) began as a faith-based organization to help the victims of hurricane Ivan in the tri island state of Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique during September 2004.

What started as a primary concern to help render relief after damage assessment and consultation with community leaders has swiftly grown into an initiative fueled by a 'vision'.

A vision that seeks not only to help the Caribbean but other countries in establishing a series of Empowerment programs that will bring socioeconomic changes to those who reside in impoverished countries focusing especially on women and children.

Over the years UCT has injected an enormous amount of sweat equity into laying the foundations for our 'Sowing Seeds of Success' Haiti Reforestation programme.

Jenny Tryhane Founder and CEO of UCT has personally visited Haiti on six occasions, including in 2015 to do training for the "Food For Life Haiti" Benzoliv programme and establishing a massive network of schools/orphanages and churches that are poised now to establish this programme.


'Widespread deforestation is a critical concern in Haiti and poses a serious threat to the lives of Haitian citizens. This deforestation has led to flooding, dramatic rates of soil erosion, and subsequent declines in agricultural productivity. Haiti's valuable coastal and marine resources have been degraded by sediment deposit and overfishing, resulting in considerable loss in biodiversity.'

Our one year 'Sowing Seeds of Success' educational children's curriculum will work to reeducate the children in Haiti and eventually in DR Congo on the value of planting trees, especially Moringa trees!

They will however also be taught about Jesus the true vine, and God the Father, the Gardener.

Although our children's curriculum is educational it also has a Spiritual side that will nurture the children spiritually over the year, like watering and nurturing a small seed from germination to maturity. Seeds, like children, come in different shapes, colours and sizes, but every seed carries within it all the potential and the promise of what it can become. This curriculum will help develop character in the children developing their full potential as we sow seeds of success.

United Caribbean Trust Sowing Seed of Success
Haiti Reforestation Children's Curriculum with Creole Visual Aids

UCT has been working on creating this multi-lingual one year children's curriculum now for over a year. It is subdivided into three terms to compliment the child's school term as well as a three week Summer Camp programme.

1•  Sowing Seeds of Success 12 Part Series

•  This curriculum starts with the Introduction to BENZOLIV. Educating the children on the nutritional benefits of Moringa Oleifera, recognized as the 'Miracle Tree', 'Mothers Friend", "Mother's Milk" and in Haiti 'Benzoliv'

•  INTRODUCTION to Sowing Seeds of Success  is a 4 week educational teaching on sowing seeds in the natural and in the Spiritual. Seeds require different types of soils, water, sunlight, time and just the right temperature to flourish and grow. Botanists will tell you that the  soil  determines the health and strength of a plant. The better the soil, the healthier, the more fruitful and stronger the plant will be, in these four week sessions the children will be i ntroduced to the  Sowers Parable .

•  Introduction to NURTURING of the Moringa Seed  - This four part series focuses on the 'Nurturing' of the seed and Moringa sapling. The children will have already learnt in order to grow plants need sunlight and water.

Here they will learn that gardens need to be weeded. Just like we need to weed the sin out of our lives. They will be taught just as their Moringa plant needs protection from bugs, goats etc, they need to guard it, similarly they will learn that they need to guard their hearts , how to s et a guard over their mouth , their eyes and ears .

In order to grow, plants sometimes need to be pruned especially Moringa. In order for Christians to grow sometimes God has to prune our lives. God shapes us and creates us to be what He wants us to be. Sometimes that is a bit uncomfortable, but He does it for our good because all things work together for our good.

•  Introduction to the FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT . A tree is recognized by its fruit. The children will learn they cannot live life without God and produce good fruit.

•  This curriculum ends with HARVESTING  the Benzoliv. The harvest Jesus was talking about in the Bible was not Benzoliv. harvesting. He was sending out workers to bring people into the Kingdom of God. He said that there were many souls who were ready to be harvested, but there were not enough workers. Let's pray for workers to join us in His harvest field.

The follow up from this curriculum is a 12 part series Super Fruit series

2•  SUPER FRUITS - 12 Part Series introducing 12 super fruits and the Fruit of the Spirit

Each 'Fruit of the Sprit' session allows us to introduce the child to a  Super Fruit, including Mango, Pomegranates, Avocados, Guava, Papaya, Banana, Breadfruit, Soursop, Fig and Mulberry. Children will learn not only about the nutritional benefits of all of these Super Fruits but the medicinal benefits of the leaves. They will learn how to graft the trees, nurture and prune them. With each lesson the school will be given a fruit tree, from our plant nursery, to be established to compliment this programme. This will build up a school orchard to supply the children with fresh fruit.

Videos can be downloaded, visual aids have been produced in French and Creole and other languages designed for Africa as well. Super Fruits Handouts have been created for the children to take home in their language for their parents or guardians.

3•  GROW and GO   - 10 Part Series (To be translated)

•  Grow and Go five Part Growth - LIGHT Series. (Necessary ingredients for plant growth)

•  Grow and Go five Part Growth - WATER Series. (Necessary ingredients for plant growth)

'Sowing Seeds of Success' Haiti Reforestation Children's Programme:

This programme will be sponsored and supported by United Caribbean Trust and Special Treasures our Haitian charity and will be divided into six Phases.

Haiti will initially be subdivided into two regions with specially selected school teachers/Sunday school teachers sponsored to be trained, employed to implement and teach this curriculum.



  • Port au Prince
  • Bon Repos
  • Montrouis
  • Jacmel


  • Les Cayes
  • Port Salut
  • Tiburon
  • Jeremie


United Caribbean Trust has established excellent connections in these town with contacts in schools, orphanages and churches. Years of humanitarian work and training has positioned us to now implement this excellent 'Sowing Seeds of Success' Haiti children's reforestation programme. Links have been provided below to demonstrate some of our many visits to Haiti.

Two teachers will be recommended and interviewed from each town within our vast network of churches and schools in these two zones.

TThey must be bilingual and have experience with children's ministry with US visas and negative Covid tests prior to travel.

•  Two teachers from 'Heart for Haiti' school and orphanage in Port-au-Prince

Heart for Haiti

•  Two teachers from Dr. Yoland Thurval Foundation school and orphanage in Bon Repos,

Yolanda Thurval Foundation

•  Two teachers from Montrouis Ministry


•  Two teachers from Jacmel in the south


WESTERN ZONE - Les Cayes is where we have our base Headquarters and it is in this zone that we want to start this pilot project.

•  Two teachers from Les Cayes

Les Cayes

•  Two teachers from Port Salut

Port Salut

•  Two teachers from Jeremie


•  Two teachers from Tiburon


Years ago United Caribbean Trust established an Haitian charity called Special Treasures

All funding will be channeled through Special Treasures for clarity and transparency. Due to the recent increase in violence and kidnapping in Haiti it has become too dangerous for UCT staff to travel to Haiti to do this intensive training so we are proposing that these teachers be sponsored to come to our base Headquarters in Barbados to complete a 4 month in house and on the ground training prior to returning to Haiti.

Phase #1

This proposal is designed for the start of the year in January. UCT will provide flights to Barbados, food and lodging as well as a small stipend of US $150 per month to cover personal expenses when on island. All training will be done by professionally trained children's ministers, personally or online. Training will include teaching in numerous children's ministries, as well as disaster management and horticulture.

•  Kids in Ministry International online training

•  Kids EE in person training and practical experience

•  Crisis Response International (CRI) online training. CRI train individuals and churches to meet the unique  spiritual, physical, and emotional needs  that arise in urgent times of crisis and disaster. After training, volunteers are screened, credentialed, and become eligible for deployment to relief operations around the world. This online training will be a crucial part of the Phase 1 training and will compliment our children's Post Traumatic Stress programme 'Heal a Hurting Heart' Written in French/Creole especially for the terrible earthquake that impacted Haiti recently. There is also a hurricane and COVID version in French/Creole.

Training will involve 'in house teaching', online and in person teaching. And 'on the job experience' within 5 communities in Barbados - New Orleans, Emmerton, Deacons, Gall Hill and Eden Lodge. Connecting with these communities through Mount Zion's Missions Barbados Foursquare Church. A minimum of 3 teachers plus a local Community Outreach Trainer will teach initially the 'Sowing Seeds of Success' 12 week series in each of the five After School Clubs, Monday to Friday 16.00 to `18.00. The second semester will repeat this exercise but with the second curriculum 'Super Fruits' The third semester will teach the Go and Grow Series and the final semester will teach the Spiritual Growth and New Life 13 part Series.

Creating French and Haitian Creole recourses:

•  Continue to translate into French and Haitian Creole the many UCT curriculums available for translation.

•  Translate the Kids in Ministry International starter pack in French and Haitian Creole.

•  Working with local musicians to establish Haitian Creole children's praise and worship chorus music videos in our in house recording studio.

•  Creating Creole voiceovers on children's animated educational videos with English subtitles.

•  Creating Creole PowerPoints, colouring pages and take home tracks for Bible for Children to compliment our many French/Creole curriculums.

•  Assist in creating Creole activity books to assist with teaching the curriculum.

Training in Horticulture, Seed Germination and Fruit tree grafting:

•  Moringa health and medicinal benefits, many educational handouts in need of translation.

•  Super Fruits education

•  Training on grafting fruit tree

•  Be introduced to numerous online websites that teach creative ways to teach the plant life cycle to children all of which will compliment our 'Sowing Seeds of Success' curriculum.

We Are Teachers

•  Online training with the 'Kitchen Garden Foundation' on how to establish a Kitchen Garden Program in your school 

Training For Schools | Kitchen Garden

French/Haitian Creole curriculum production:

Each teacher will assist with the creation of the curriculum including all props needed for the program. Each teacher will be given three of each of the French/Creole curriculums to return to Haiti to commence the implementation aspect of this training.

•  'Sowing Seeds of Success' - 12 Part Series

•  'Super Fruits' - 12 Part series

•  'Grow and Go' - 12 Part Series

•  'Spiritual Growth' and New Life - 13 Part Series

• 'Heal a Hurting Heart' Earthquake Post Traumatic Stress - 15 Part curriculum (optional for south west Haiti following their recent earthquake)

• 'Heal a Hurting Heart' Hurricane Post Traumatic Stress - 15 Part curriculum (optional for Central Haiti regularly impacted by storms such as Hurricane Matthew )

• 'Heal a Hurting Heart' Covid 19 Post Traumatic Stress - 15 Part curriculum (optional for all areas impacted by the Pandemic.)

Phase #2

All our Haitian graduates will return to Haiti in time for Easter with their family, having enjoyed the last two weeks in Barbados on holiday enjoying the beauty of our beautiful Caribbean island home.

They will be employed at the going rate of employment for a teacher in Haiti which is currently US $100 per month. We will increase that to $150 per month to compensate for the traveling that will be involved in this aspect of the six month Phase #2 curriculum implementation and editing stage.

The two teachers from each town in the two Haitian Zones will return with their French curriculum packs. Pastor Pierre Bannes Laurore, our UCT Haiti Representative and a Director of Special Treasures, will have negotiated with his regional network to establish three pilot projects in three schools or churches in each town in the two zones over the year.

CAPITAL / CENTRAL ZONE, including Port au Prince the capital, Bon Repos in the suburbs, Montrouis in the central zone and Jacmel in the south.

WESTERN ZONE, including Les Cayes, Port Salut, Tiburon and Jeremie to the north in Grand Anse.

20 children will be allocated to take part in each pilot project per school or church, commencing after Easter in April. Commencing with the 'Sowing Seeds of Success' 12 part series. This will involve two afternoons per week in two school, plus one afternoon per week and a Saturday Sowing Seeds of Success Club in the third school. This is a trial Pilot Project where the curriculum is edited and adapted if needed to be culturally sensitive.After every afternoon session the teachers meet, via Zoom, to assess how successful the lesson was, to critique and edit and make any changes that need to be made before the next teaching. By the third school/church the lesson should have been perfected and be ready for printing.

All printing will be done in Les Cayes and will be supervised by Pastor Pierre Bannes Laurore who is based there and has a Printing Business and whose school and church will be involved in the Pilot Project in Les Cayes.

A Programme Manager has been earmarked who has been our UCT translator since 2009 and he will travel between the two Zones visiting each town once a fortnight to identify any problems that may be arising and assisting where needed. He will directly communicate with UCT to update us on the progress. His job will be US $500 per month and include a car.

Each pair of teachers will be equipped with a laptop to enable them to download the videos for the songs to be sung as well as the educational videos that can be downloaded from our website. Most of the schools or churches involved in the Pilot Project will have a monitor or TV so the laptop can be connected and the children can enjoy the teaching. This laptop will also be used for Zoom meetings.

Additional stipends will be paid to help cover additional expenses during this Phase #2 Pilot Project including crayons, paper, pens markers, glue etc that may be needed to assist with the creation of visual aids needed to teach the lessons.

Additional expenses will be covered by Special Treasures including drinks and snacks for the children during Phase #2.

Two weeks holiday will be taken at the end prior to Phase #3.

Special Treasures will sponsor Phase #3 which includes two 3 weeks Summer Camps per town in each Zone. Our teachers will have access to these Camps to test the last curriculum prior to printing. Phase #3

Following a two week holiday at the end of Phase #2 the teachers will begin the Summer Camp programme. This is done during the Summer Holidays. The teachers will work with two local summer camps to test the Spiritual Grow and Go and New Life curriculum prior to printing.

Three week 'Summer Camp' Programme (15 sessions will be tested.)

•  Grow and Go Series Introducing Natural Growth - 1 session (To be translated)

•  Grow and Go Spiritual Growth - 5 Part Series (To be translated)

•  'FunTastic Fun Fair' Afternoon session (To be translated)

•  New Life curriculum - 8 Part Series (To be translated)

Following the afternoon Session #1 teaching in the first Summer Camp the teachers will meet, via Zoom, to assess how successful the Session #1 was, to critique and edit and make any changes that need to be made before the next Session #1 teaching which will take place the next morning in the second Summer Camp.That second afternoon she will teach Session #2 in the first Summer Camp the teachers will meet following the lesson, via Zoom, to assess how successful the Session #2 was, to critique and edit and make any changes that need to be made before the next Session #2 teaching which will take place the next morning in the second Summer Camp. This process will be duplicated with a Zoom meeting to assess the lessons, which once edited will be tested the next morning in the second Summer Camp for the three week period.

Once the curriculum has been finally tested and corrected it will then be printed in Les Cayes and the Programme Manager will be responsible for collecting the packs for distribution to the teachers for the commencement of Phase #4.

Phase #4

Following the three weeks children's Summer Camp project the teachers will embark on Phase #4. This is a vital part of their training to teach other teachers that are interested in introducing this Sowing Seeds of Success Haiti Reforestation Programme into their schools, orphanages or churches. This is the final empowerment and equipping aspect of this project.

Half day workshops will have been organized in advance using Pastor Bannes vast network of schools, orphanages and churches in the two Zones. Half day workshops will be hosted from 12 noon to 6pm with a break for tea and snacks in the afternoon. It is uncertain how many of these can be organizes and how many teachers will be interested in coming to the workshops, but from past experience there is such a shortage of good children's ministry teaching and material in Creole that the response was overwhelming.

Each ministry, school or orphanage taught in these half day workshops will be provided with a 'Sowing Seeds of Success' pack which will mean the teachers are not only empowered but equipped with all that they need to introduce this year long programme into their organization.

This programme can easily flow into our Heal a Hurting Heart curriculum and the new teachers/Sunday school teachers/Orphanage aids will be taught about this curriculum and can be issued with it in the future if they want to embark in this curriculum be it for Post Traumatic Stress for the Earthquake in Les Cayes and the south west, or a hurricane in the Capital, Montrouis or Jacmel or the COVID stress that the children are dealing with following this pandemic.

Phase #5:

This phase takes place after the Summer Holiday camp and Teachers Empowerment Programme. Here the same principles are applied but the curriculum being taught is the Super Fruits 12 week programme. Being tried and tested in the same three schools/orphanages or churches. Once tested and edited it goes for printing and is distributed to the new teachers taught during the summer recess. Taking the students through until the end of the year and completing of their one year course.

Phase #6

Grow and Go school programme- 10 week Light and Water Growth Series tested


UCT is hoping to be able to establish a fruit plant nursery in each Zone to be able to continue to sponsor these new schools, orphanages or churches embarking on our Sowing Seeds of Success Haiti Reforestation Programme, by supplying them each with the 12 Super Fruit saplings as they embark on the project.

Long term UCT is hoping to be able to purchase some agriculture land in these two zones, initially, to establish a Moringa Estate and Moringa processing plant, as part of our "Food For Life Caribbean"

Manufacturing organic Moringa tea, Dried Moringa Powder to add to cooking as well as Moringa soap and cream for cosmetic purposes. We have established a European market to sell these Moringa products to bring in additional revenue to continue to fund this excellent reforestation programme.


•  16 teachers will graduated from our one year Programme from two Zones within Haiti

•  5 Barbadian communities in Phase #1 will benefit from the 12 week 'Sowing Seeds of Success' Moringa programme. Planting hundreds of Moringa trees in these impoverished Barbadian communities and educating the people of the nutritional and medicinal benefits of this 'Miracle Tree'

•  480 Haitian children will take part in the Phase #2 Pilot Project to test the curriculum prior to being printed in mass. Resulting in 480 Moringa trees being planted at home or in the school/church or orphanage is possible.

•  12 small Super Fruit trees will be donated to each school/church or orphanage taking part in the Phase #2 Pilot Project resulting in 288 fruit trees being planted, establishing 32 orchards within the school/church or orphanage if possible as part of our School Kitchen Garden programme.

•  "Food For Life - Haiti Benzoliv

•  Following Phase #4 it is impossible to assess how many new ministries, schools or orphanages that will be trained and equipped to embark in this 'Sowing Seeds of Success Haiti Reforestation Project'. Resulting in thousands of Moringa trees and Super Fruit trees being planted in the two Zones in Haiti •  Our 16 original teachers will continue to be sponsored to allow them to continue the excellent work in Haiti, training and teaching other teachers and equipping them in this wonderful programme. 

You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others ."
