James Obarowski is the project manager for the Haiti Hope Project, a five-year, $9.5 million public-private partnership among businesses, multilateral development institutions, the U.S. Government and nonprofits, designed to create sustainable economic opportunities for Haitian mango farmers and their families.
Haiti Hope aims to double the incomes of 25,000 Haitian mango farmers over five years. Achieving this goal will raise the standard of living for beneficiary farmers and contribute to the long-term development and revitalization of the country.
To support this objective, Haiti Hope promotes training opportunities for local mango producers and connects smallholder farmers to exporters, thereby linking them to international markets. The Project has implemented activities in regions where Haiti’s mango industry has the highest potential for success.
The Haiti Hope Project is a public-private partnership comprised of The Coca-Cola Company; the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF), a member of the Inter-American Development Bank Group (IDB); the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID); and TechnoServe. The Project is also supported by the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, the Soros Economic Development Fund, and other international and local organizations.
