Appropriate Technologies

We demonstrate, teach and equip Haitian families with small-scale technologies to help save time and create jobs.

Included as part of the Agricultural Training Center, Love A Child’s Appropriate Technologies initiative introduces sustainable, small-scale technologies which are affordable, and can have an immediate improvement in time-savings, comfort, health, and safety in daily family life.

What is Appropriate Technology?

Appropriate Technologies are simple (appropriate) technological solutions to common problems that families living in extreme poverty face.

How Haitian families benefit… 

One of the best benefits of appropriate technology use is the freeing-up of valuable time from demanding daily chores so that a Haitian has time for a “job” instead of spending all day trying to access basic needs such as water, food, fuel, and sanitary conveniences.
