A first-generation Haitian-American, Jean-Ronald has a strong passion for history, service, and activism. In the wake of the multiple natural disasters that devastated Haiti, Jean-Ronald set about to find a solution that could restore Haiti and its people and divert their future from its projected path. Instead of one solution, he found many. Slowly over time, combined with an empathetic, collaborative, and innovative approach, those solutions became Kiskeya International.
The Kiskeya Team is currently training internationally in Syntropic Farming, Permaculture Design, Aircrete and Bamboo Architecture.
Kiskeya Farms will fight the deforestation of Haiti through the use of Syntropic and sustainable bamboo farming, while also teaching these skills to the people.
Kiskeya will engage in sustainable development initiatives such as empowering entrepreneurs, building community spaces, and expanding our training programs.
Kiskeya will transition out of Haiti while empowering the local people to continue the work of healing their nation.
