Sales for Sustenance

Empowering subsistence fishermen. Reliably. Equitably. Sustainably.

The Haiti Sailing Cup together with Sails for Sustenance are providing recycled sails to Haiti fishermen, based on the following principles:

  • Access to more remote fishing grounds means bigger fish and an end to malnutrition for Haiti's coastal communities. Donated sails from S4S can grant that access.

  • Your donated sails give fishermen the ability to harness the clean, renewable, and inexpensive power of WIND, liberating them from a reliance on fossil fuels. We believe in sustainable fisheries.

  • Haiti's fishermen need a hand up, not a handout. Donated sails lower the cost of entry to business and fishermen become entrepreneurs, selling excess catch at profit and bringing income to their families.
