25 Mar: Konbit Grants Program Funds Haitian Actors of Change
Haitian institutions are often seen as inactive or absent in key areas of Haiti’s growth. This is a misconception that ignores the many challenges this group faces. One of the most significant difficulties is that they are not structured to compete for and manage international funding, due to lack of access to organizational capacity development, thus limiting their ability to be actors of change.
25 Mar: Konbit.ht: Putting Haiti on the Digital Map
In Haiti, local and foreign institutions working in the country suffer from a lack of access to information. Not only are data produced by the Haitian Government or other entities not published or accessible to a wider audience, but service providers are not listed, and funding opportunities are not shared. As a result, outsiders see Haiti as a difficult country in which to invest, and local service providers often don’t have access to funding opportunities.

In 2013, the Smallholder Alliance for Sorghum in Haiti (SMASH, implemented by Papyrus) was launched by BRANA, a Heineken company, to strengthen the sorghum value chain and spur socially inclusive growth in Haiti. In 2016, SMASH partnered with RTI International and Dimagi to develop SMASH Mobil, an integrated mobile technology and reporting system, to support actors across the value chain.
