Asosyasyon Pou Devlopman Mibalè (Asodem) Group's story

In 2008, Jean Claudion left Port-au-Prince to return to his hometown Mirebalais. He had some experiences in social work. Heading to Mirebalais, he wanted to support families in its neighborhoods. He gathered a few locals in the community of Denigon and discussed the problems that they had been coping with. They became conscious about the needs of community. After many meetings and discussions, in October 2009 they launched ASODEM which in Creole stands for “Asosyasyon pou Devlopman Mibalè”, pictured is the committee with Jean Claudion. The first activity was to allow 50 members of the organization to receive training in gardening. Since then, they've continued working to change the lives of people in Denigon. The goal of ASODEM is to reinforce the national production by implementing different projects in the agricultural sector such as production of corn, millet, vegetables, and livestock. A loan will allow the organization to increase their chicken production. This will contribute to food security and sustain jobs already created in rural Mirebalais.
