AFG team workshop
Learning to work as a team and be creative is a concept that we have been developing through our experience. In fact, our project " Produce for Feeding" give us a chance to put together our input in order to remedy many issues, especially hunger and poverty that our community has been encountering for 30 years. As young professional we do realize that the time comes to step and step to gradually change the situation. Paving the efficient way and safe environment for the next generation is on our back. As we already know, the three most basic needs of human are Air (Breathing), Water, Food. How can we get food without producing? It would be complicated and impossible to live in if the world were totally a desert? Yet they way we are treating the planet is awful and start having negative on our lives. Thus AFG is committed to put our grain of salt in the meals just solve agricultural problems while fighting against hunger.
Mangoes at the farm- To market place
It was nice for us to be at the public market while working on our project. The sellers and buyers were happy to meet us and share some difficulties they have get the agricultural product from the farm to the market place. That situation pushes us to go deeper and understands why people continue suffering of hunger in our community or in other places around the world. Most of the time, lack of production due to different types of problems that the farmers have been accoutering or no way to transport and conserve the product for a long period of time. This cause a shortage of food on the local market.

Mangoes from the Production Farm
Madame Francique is a premium quality yellow mango. It is a large, flattened, kidney-shaped fruit with light-green skin which becomes slightly yellowish on ripening. The flesh is sweet with a rich flavour; orange in colour and with a low incidence of fibre: one of the best mangoes in the Caribbean.
“The mango tree is probably best known in Haiti. The fruit is highly esteemed and everywhere along the roads in the shade of small tents of sacking, we encounter sellers. Old and young, rich and poor, are pleased to taste this delicious tropical fruit that can be consumed without any preparation. The tree is usually large and covers a fairly wide area. Of graceful shape, it is one of the jewels of the flora of Haiti, beautifying the landscape, while providing the tired walker or worker the benevolent shadow of its thick foliage. The mango is valuable in this country or there are quite a number of varieties.”
