The Need In Central America, the devastating cycle of slash & burn farming does not allow families to meet their basic nutritional needs. Malnutrition contributes directly to poverty, which leads to increased childhood mortality rates, reduced access to higher education, poor housing, lack of sanitation systems and limited access to medical care.
Our Solution Sustainable Harvest International (SHI) has worked with families in rural farming communities in Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama since 1997. Using organic vegetable gardens, wood-conserving stoves, biogas digesters and a host of other projects, SHI's local field trainers work together with families, individuals and communities to preserve our planet's tropical forests while overcoming poverty. Our five-phase approach to solving the agricultural, ecological and economic problems of Central America is innovative, hands-on and long-term.
Mission Statement The mission of Sustainable Harvest International (SHI) is to provide farming families in Central America with the training and tools to preserve our planet's tropical forests while overcoming poverty.
