Global Health Action, Inc.
October 31, 2013

GHA has had a sustained service commitment (30+ years) improving lives of people in the rural and mountainous areas of Haiti through community health education. This past April I had the incredible privilege to witness GHA in action in rural Haiti. In contrast to many NGOs operating in Haiti, the entire GHA staff in Haiti is Haitian.

I love GHA's goat project, where Haitian staff run a goat station which includes breeding Haitian goats with hardier goat species and then giving pregnant goats to beneficiaries living in rural, mountainous isolated communities in Haiti. Each impregnated goat provides a sustained impact on improving the lives of the beneficiaries, who are now in a position to sell some of their goats for purposes such as materials for a roof or education for a child. The GHA goat station staff trains community animal health workers, who live in the same communities as the goat recipients and these animal health workers provide assistance and advice in raising goats and if a goat is sick in their community.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Maybe collaborate with larger NGOs operating in Haiti to leverage more resources to expand community health and development in Haiti. GHA has a long term relationship, expertise and trust with Haitians that some other NGOS might not have, but the other NGOs might have more funds available.
