Ministere du Jardin de Bainet
Founded in 2012, MIJABA is a youth-guided non-profit organization that aims to build a sustainable future for Haitian villagers in Bainet.
Dr. Jeff, also known as Dieufene Losier, is a medical doctor who created MIJABA in 2012 with the help of five youth in the village. Together, they began to build organic gardens for other villagers. These gardens not only produce healthy food, such as legumes, potatoes and fresh vegetables for villagers; they also provide a source of income for the community. MIJABA uses the garden’s proceeds to send impoverished youth to school.
Today fifteen youth help over three hundred members in the village make gardens, build recreational areas, educate youth, plant trees, teach artistic trades to encourage entrepreneurship, and train healthcare professionals, including EMTs and midwives. All of these initiatives help to build a healthy and sustainable community for years to come.
