Mission: To help foster recovery efforts and development by partnerships with the local community, teaching the principles of aquaponics, permaculture, business, management and build affordable housing & infrastructure to bring people out of poverty and create a growing industry, that will self perpetuate and continue to bring more people out of poverty, permanently. Simply our mission is not to place a band-aid on the problem, but find and implement real lifelong solutions.
HEALTHY: Aquaponic grown produce is made by replicating river and lake ecosystems in a controlled environment thereby creating a living ecosystem that produces incredibly delicious, fresh, vibrant, pure vegetables and fish, all while having a minimal impact on the environment.
SUSTAINABLE: Greenhouses local to the people ensures optimum
growing conditions for fresh local food production and vast reduction of travel time, distribution and fuel costs and lack of supply. This promotes food security, food sovereignty, and reconnects people again with the source of their food and their neighbors who grow it.
This project proposal being presented was developed specifically for Haiti. Haitians are a proud, strong, smart, resilient people and what is valued most is family, friends and their local community. This was considered by UCG and we believe the best way to allow Haiti to thrive is not to treat them as a charity case, but to believe in them and help them help themselves.
Haiti has never given up hope nor have the people lost sight of this vision however, natural disasters have changed this country's course. UCG is poised and ready to roll up our sleeves and provide the people of Haiti with food, shelter, tools, vocational training and an opportunity that will create many new businesses and jobs while becoming a leader in one agricultural export. This proven crop is easy to grow, easy to harvest, provides fiber, food, oil and medicine and Haiti has the opportunity to become the world's leader in production in very short time.
This plan provides all Haitian people the greatest chance for success while addressing and providing answers to any of the small challenges the rebuilding effort could face. UCG in conjunction with some recently retired top Haitian officials have developed a three phase plan to address current medical and food shortages, emergency shelter and job creations while re-establishing a sense of national Haitian pride. Haiti will become a world leader in an exportable product and provide all currently displaced, hungry citizens with food and a food source, safe, secure and strong homes of the future, and vocational training for adults and new schools for Haiti’s next generation of World Leaders.
The three phase strategy that UCG and it’s partners developed breaks down the cost needed to begin the first phase one of this multi-year effort to rebuild Haiti. Each subsequent phase shall be priced at the same amount but address different aspects of this effort. At the halfway mark of Phase 1 a complete accounting for Phase 2 will be shared and mutually agreed upon so that there is never a lapse in this effort. Economic prosperity comes with being a market leader in something. This plan will provide the country an opportunity to do this while they rebuild. Everything in this world happens for a reason. Some are able to be controlled others cannot. UCG is excited to be a part of a change that will be a turning point for this nation.
Phase 1: Emergency Food, Emergency Shelter and planting of the Haitian Hemp Brand, the world's finest hemp kissed by the Caribbean Sky. The future of Haiti is in industrial hemp. This phase will cost one hundred million ($100MM). We will launch this effort in three of the hardest hit areas within Haiti, and provide each emergency shelter for 1,000 people, build basic infrastructure, build out prototype vertical farm operation, plant edible indoor crops with renewable ten harvests per year and plant the outdoor crop that will help Haiti become economically vibrant and provide a continual revenue stream, which will be used in part to continue on to Phase 2 & Phase 3.
Phase 2: Continue to build infrastructure, expand vertical farming production, begin prototype affordable housing development and Hemp processing plants, so that Haitian Hemp becomes a guaranteed growing successful endeavor.
Phase 3: Expand hemp production, rebuilding effort of commercial districts and substantial building of affordable homes for the Haitian people begins.
