In its 23 years, The Com­pre­hens­ive De­vel­op­ment pro­ject (CODEP ) has planted 12,000,000 trees in Haiti, provid­ing em­ploy­ment, lead­er­ship train­ing, and busi­ness de­vel­op­ment in ad­di­tion to en­vir­on­ment­al re­hab­il­it­a­tion. A core mis­sion is to work in close part­ner­ship with Haitians to cre­ate self-suf­fi­ciency and even­tu­al sole lead­er­ship and man­age­ment by the Haitian com­munity.
