Kòdinasyon pou Devlopman Solidè Sidès (KODESS)

KODESS was founded on July 25, 2008 to offer technical assistance to small scale production peasant organizations, women and youth organizations in the Southeast department who have been left to themselves. However, the four hurricanes that passed over just a three week period in 2008 (Fay, Gustav, Hannah and Ike) motivated KODESS more to advance its mission more quickly.
