Fishing equipment, supplies to the starved fishing villages of Haiti and Jamaica
Food for the Poor, Jamaica and Haiti - www.foodforthepoorja.com
Food For The Poor is the largest international relief and development charity in the United States. The organization reaches out to the poor by daily feeding over 2 million people! The DEVELOPMENT dollars we raise will help provide fishing equipment to the hundreds of fishing villages in Haiti and Jamaica that have been hit by the growing global food crisis. Food For The Poor’s efforts benefit not only fishermen but also their families and communities. Food For The Poor provides seaworthy boats, reliable engines, and other fishing equipment for Haitian and Jamaican fishermen to work in deeper more bountiful waters in order to catch larger more marketable fish. Haiti and Jamaica are two of the poorest nations in the Western Hemisphere, and the growing food crisis is hitting the villages of these countries extremely hard.
The recipients of the fishing equipment are taught deep-sea fishing and business practices that are both ecologic and economic friendly. With the contributions we gather from Develo proceeds, we are giving villages the opportunity to break free from the cycle of poverty.

Environmental Conservation and Poverty Alleviation of Tropical America
The Amazon Conservation Association - www.amazonconservation.org
Whether it’s to keep the local streams clean and clear or to keep the world at large a beautiful and bountiful place, almost every angler is an environmental conservationist at heart. Well, the Amazon Conservation association (ACA) has taken a very unique approach in their efforts to conserve the world’s most biodiverse region… In 1997, they starting providing unemployed Peruvians with the means and supplies to harvest Brazilian nuts from the Amazonian forests (which are one the most profitable non-timber resources in the Amazon). This innovative approach to conservation provides labor and income generation to some of South America’s poorest people, and ultimately serves to provide a dual purpose to environmental conservation as thousands now depend on the income generated by ACA’s provisions. Since the inception of this program in 1997, ACA’s “Dual Purpose approach” has also protected over 1.5 million acres and has been replicated by many conservation agencies around the world. We love supporting the innovation of the ACA’s programs and the fact that supporting them means supporting the environment, job creation, and poverty alleviation all in one.
