The Foundation for International Development Assistance

The Foundation for International Development Assistance is a small Canadian organisation that works with the poor in rural Haiti.

Through agriculture cooperatives, staff teach farmers how to produce and store healthy crops, as well as focusing on literacy skills, conflict resolution and sound business practices.

The success of FIDA’s work is due to strong relationships – the farmers trust and work closely with staff, who actually live with them for short periods of time in remote mountainous regions.

Every piece of FIDA’s correspondence carries this ethos of the cooperatives:-

‘If we work hand in hand, we can go far. We must trust each other because we need each other to go on’.

These are very powerful words to live by. In our global world, which seems to grow smaller with each and every passing day, we are all neighbours responsible for the wellbeing of one another.
