About the Institute

The Caribbean Institute for Sustainable Devopment (TCI) is a non-profit (501c3) organization* whose purpose is to strengthen communities by increasing and improving citizens’ involvement in all areas of community life, including cultural expression, economic development, public safety and governance.

TCI was created in October 2010 by an international group of senior Caribbean and American anthropologists, economists, sociologists, and development professionals. TCI is registered in Miami with programs and research activities in New Orleans, Haiti and Jamaica.

Christmas Special:  Give Fruit Trees for Christmas: Want to make a perfect gift to a Haitian farm family that has been wiped out by Hurricane Matthew? TCI has launched a new program, Appui à la Securité Alimentaire et la Gouvernance Locale (ASOGLO), in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Matthew in southern Haiti. The hurricane destroyed agricultural production in the south, which used to produce 40% of Haiti’s food. ASAGLO is an integrated food security and local governance program that distributes fruit trees to farmers and gardeners in the hurricane impacted area through local organizations. We hope visitors to this blog site will consider making a donation to ASAGLO to help get southern Haiti sustainably back on its feed and avert famine. Our Board is covering all administrative costs, so that every donated dollar goes to producing, acquiring and distributing the seedlings and training extension workers.  Just $7 funds the production, distribution and follow-up for each fruit tree.  No donation is too small or too large.  Make a contribution to help us deliver 1,500 trees to 250 farmers and urban gardeners by Christmas!

Thank you! All donations are tax deductible and spent 100% on program costs.
