About KOSĀHA     

KOSĀHA (Konbit Sosyal Asosiyasyon Hayti) is a growing local organization formed in 2019 that stemmed from the meeting of two members involved in a local farming movement in Grande Anse. With the arrival of a third member on the management team, KOSĀHA brought its vision to fruition with its first ‘konbit’ with Julia & Jade, another Grande Anse local community farming organization. This attracted other organizations in other departments  that heard about KOSĀHA’s success. 



The vision in full manifest

Building KOSĀHA sites from an agricultural standpoint is first done by ensuring a means of irrigation, followed by essential infrastructure, reinforcing an era of economic development. Agriculture being our biggest asset to ensure an autonomous reality that does not depend on foreign entities. KOSĀHA’s vision is to bring support by structuring its sites with the ability to reform health and education systems, connecting with the diaspora and creating a collaborative work setting that is more relatable.


As a member of KOSĀHA

Up until now, KOSĀHA has generated funds locally by pooling monthly membership fees through a collective cooperative form. 

In the current zone of operation of Kenscoff, the aim is to have 50 local members paying 1000 Haitian Gourdes twice a month while working their own land. KOSĀHA will provide extra workers, equipment and tools, seed, water, produce transport, local and international distribution and sale. Members then receive 10% of profits from each harvest. Members are held to an administrative 25 year social contract where the land cannot be sold, rented or borrowed.

In a larger frame, members, their families and communities benefit from job creation and reorganization of essential infrastructure such as water, electricity, sanitary stations, kitchens, housing, mills, schools and roads.

KOSĀHA is now in Kenscoff working with the farmers and community to tap and relay three water springs for complete irrigation of member-owned lands, within a set plan.
