On a bi-annual basis, the foundation begins the black beans project. A portion of these beans is handed over to a community of farmers. This is sowed and they are supposed to return another produce. Then this is further distributed among another community of farmers.
The black beans are immensely beneficial for the health. Rich in fiber potassium, folate, phytonutrient content, and vitamin B6, it reduced cholesterol in the body and promote heart health. Nowadays, a network of more than 600 farmers is taking part in the projects. It started from 50 and has rapidly become a fruitful l opportunity for the Haiti farmers. Not only provides healthy food but financial sustenance as well.
THE BLACK BEANS PROJECT
THE ANDERSON DOVILAS FOUNDATION
At the Anderson Dovilas Foundation, we believe a community is only as strong as the individuals it serves. That’s why we’ve developed tools and processes that empower, educate and nurture youth and seniors living in Haiti. Through our dedication to growth and development and our passion for building a family-like network, we remain committed to achieving our vision of improving the quality of life for those Haitians who seek to thrive.
Our mission was accomplished, we had a great time in Haiti. One thing I can say is that I was amazed by the entrepreneurial spirit of the Haitian people. They would spend the little money they had to buy chickens to grow for food or to sell. Unfortunately, sometimes instead of school supplies, the families have no choice but to use money to buy food, and that is were the Anderson Dovilas Foundation steps in. We are here to help however we can to empower the people of Haiti and provide them with the aid and assistance they need. Thank you for allowing us to serve you.
TWO COMMUNITY RESTAURANTS
As you may already know, Haiti has the highest percentages of children who are underweight and who are literally wasting away in all Latin America and the Caribbean. Malnourishment in children has been a long term and chronic major public health concern and epidemic in Haiti.
The January 2010 earthquake in Haiti caused an unprecedented, catastrophic loss of human life and physical infrastructure. It also displaced at least 1.5 million people, putting more children at higher risk for malnutrition. On February 19th, 2017 the Anderson Dovilas Foundation opened a community restaurant to give access to a full meal every day to more 300 hundred people. A small price of 45 cents a meal per person is collected in order to cover a quarter of the restaurant expenses and the other three quarters is covered for by individual donations., like the one you can make today by clicking here.
Among those being fed daily, orphans and orphans are being prioritized. The restaurant is part of our community empowerment and development program that we are currently expanding in Haiti. The main focus of this project was to feed children only but, due to such a high demand when it comes to food, we had to grant access to all we could. We are very proud of how this restaurant and how it is impacting lives on a daily basis.
Please know that donating to our foundation will help feed the children and poor of Haiti. Any amount helps. It only takes a small seed of hope for a bright future to blossom. Please plant your seed today.
We thank you in advance for your support! Your donation is greatly appreciated and will be used to build more restaurants.
WATER PURIFICATION PROJECT-IN HAITI
Water is one of the major crisis in Haiti. A bottle of clean and purified water will cost the people as much as the price of a full meal. Due to the poor financial circumstances, people are inclined to make the sacrifice. They will buy the full meal and compromise by coupling it with free but contaminated water.
The Anderson Dovilas Foundation is urging people to help them build afiltered water reservoir. This way the Haiti community of more than 50,000 people will have access to clean water. Access to clean drinking water can resolve the many health problems faced by the community.

School Under Trees
The people within the foundation are investing efforts to build schools to promote education. The School Under Trees project is not only meant to help Haiti people reduce their illiteracy rate but preserve their strengths. Due to the lifestyle of the people, flexible learning is available. Teachers are sent to both childrenand adults to match their schedules.
No need to go deeper in data to know that we have a high percentage illiterate. Also, for the kids in school, we have a high percentage of failure, due to lack educational support in school, at home. The school does not work closely with the students if they are in need of extra help.
If their parents are too busy to help with school requirements, or if they don’t have an education level to accompany them with homework and other academic necessity, those children are most likely exposed to failure and will be bullied in school at home. School under trees is a mobile educational concept to support children and adult in Haiti.
