Asosyasyon Tet Kole ti Peyizan Ayisyen (TK)

Tèt Kole Ti Peyizan Ayisyen (“Heads Together Small Farmers of Haiti”) is a national peasant farmer movement that aims to end Haiti’s dependence on foreign aid and return “food sovereignty” to the country. The oldest peasant group in Haiti, it was founded in 1970 under the Duvalier dictatorship, and today has a membership of more than 55,000 peasant farmers from all ten municipalities. The organization works to create solidarity among the peasantry so that they can collectively advocate for their rights.
