(APF – Peasant Association of Fondwa, Haiti)
FUMCOG has been twinned with the Peasant Association for 12 years. In the summer of 2006, Ray Torres met in Haiti with Father Joseph Philippe and the administrators of the APF. They identified a priority need to be funding for the Secretariat which oversees about $400,000 in grants to advance the Fondwa model of sustainable rural development. The Trustees approved the Haiti Committee’s request for a grant of $3,000 to the APF to continue their outstanding work of empowering members of its community to improve their lives.
