Renaud was born and raised in Haiti, where he still lives today. We’re so excited about his visit and can’t wait to hear what he has to share!
Renaud has extensive experience in the fields of international cooperation and sustainable development. He’s also a qualified agronomist, with specializations in permaculture design and the cultivation of breadfruit.
In Haiti, Renaud is director of grassroots organization Rayjon Share Care Haiti, where he supports rural communities seeking to increase food security. He’s a fierce advocate for gender equality, actively supporting a rural Haitian Women’s Federation in their efforts to establish a cooperative breadfruit tree nursery and processing factory.
Renaud offers a unique and insightful perspective on current events and the future of Haiti.
