Founded in 1973, the Papaye Peasant Movement (MPP) is a national grassroots movement that organizes and empowers small farmers in order to improve their living conditions. Today, the MPP has more than 60,000 members, including adult men, women, and youth. The MPP’s major goals include helping Haiti regain food security, contributing to sustainable natural-resource management, advocating for women’s rights, promoting alternative energies, and building people-centered rural communities.
The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee will be sponsoring two internships with the MPP through their Global Justice Summer Internship Program: one communications internship and one ESL instruction internship. Click these links for more information on how to apply:
