By caring for the environment we display the beauty of our Creator
Dauphin Plantation history
Haiti is a beautiful country. The flora and fauna of Haiti are incredible. Over the years, however, the land has been degraded. We have an amazing Creator and our work should reflect His creativity. By caring for the environment we display the beauty of our Creator and cultivate a desirable place the community can enjoy.
In 1927, the Dauphin Plantation was soon to become the largest corporation in Haiti by cultivating 33,000 acres of sisal for export. In years following, the plantation sold to the Haitian American Sugar Co. (HASCO), then to Port Dauphin S.A., and finally to the Cassis brothers before being returned to Haitian government for unpaid taxes in the mid-1980s. Paulos Group’s Fort-Liberté campus is situated on land once owned by the plantation.
This semi-arid region surrounding Fort-Liberté Bay has potential to be an asset for a developing nation again. Through indigenously sustainable agroforestry and irrigation, Paulos Group is helping reclaim this now overgrown land commonly used to produce charcoal.
