Roots & Shoots Project of the Month — June 2016 For 30 years, Haiti Plunge Inc. has brought youth groups to work with nine bush mountain villages in the central plateau of Haiti. Since last year, youth have been building raised gardens for women next to their houses to increase the amount of food they can provide for their children.
