Situated in a rural setting some distance from markets and other businesses, the Haiti Providence University has portioned several acres of land for growing crops and a tree nursery. The university needs to become sustainable to effectively support its growing enrollment. Surplus produce can be sold to the local residents in the surrounding rural community of Balan.
Friends of HPU is currently addressing the wastewater disposal needs from two residential dormitories, using a constructed wetland filter system to treat the wastewater effluent. Once the effluent has been treated, it can be discharged in the tree nursery to sustainably irrigate the plants.
Volunteers are needed to construct this treatment system, and donations are required to purchase the necessary materials and equipment.
