Service Chrétien d’Haïti (SCH)

SCH was created in December 1954 by the Protestant Churches of Haiti to bring relief to the victims of hurricane Hazel which devastated the southeastern coast of the country. Soon after the Board realized that humanitarian actions are not sustainable and decided to invest at the same time in agriculture and agricultural training, food security, environment protection, wash and rural credit, targeting small farmers and vulnerable families in the country side. SCH worked almost uniquely in rural areas up to 2007 when it started a urban program that helped persons with disabilities to integrate church, in cooperation with the Cuban Council of Churches.
