Sustainable Tilapia Farm in Haiti – Poverty Resolutions


Sustainable solutions. It has become a term used more and more frequently, especially within the non-profit realm. It simply means something that can remain productive over time with the least amount of human involvement. Many times there is a problem that needs a solution; however, individuals and groups often go into these countries and give temporary relief. As great as any relief may be, what these impoverished countries need is a solution that lasts and that contributes to the community on a continual basis. This solution needs to be one that relies very little on human involvement. That is exactly what Poverty Resolutions has discovered and implemented within the country of Haiti—the poorest nation in the Western hemisphere.
A recent sustainable solution that Poverty Resolutions has built, implemented, and run in Haiti is a tilapia farm. The tilapia farm set-up consists of cemented “pools” that hold water filled with tilapia. Built above the pools of tilapia are chicken coops that hold 10-20 chickens at a time. The chickens are fed, and their pellets drop down into the water. Tilapia feed off of these chicken pellets, which allow the fish to survive and grow, until they eventually are harvested and sold for money. The money earned from selling the tilapia buys more chicken feed, which starts the entire process over again. In the midst of this sustainable process, the chickens also lay eggs that are used for food or as income when they are sold. This entire process requires very little human contribution, outside of building the farm itself. This sustainable solution is perfect for a country like Haiti where food, jobs, and income are of great need.
Poverty Resolutions has already established one of these tilapia farms in Haiti and plans to build more. They have acknowledged that the process is easily replicated with the right amount of funds and help. Poverty Resolutions knows they cannot stay in Haiti forever, but they want to leave the Haitian community with solutions to the poverty that runs so ramped throughout the country. Therefore, they aim to train Haitians on how to run these tilapia farms in order for the process to continue without the organization being there year-round.
