Planting Peace
Our Partner in Haiti 

Aaron Jackson, the founder of Planting Peace, was recently nominated for a “CNN HEROS” award and featured on Larry King. 

Planting Peace and the chick grant foundation was incorporated as a non-profit (or social profit as we like to call it) organization on October 23, 2003, in loving memory of Charles "Chick" Grant for the purpose of researching, developing and providing sustainable initiatives to impoverished areas around the world. We came to the conclusion, after many hours of intensive research, that small scale sustainable projects encompassing the short, middle, and longterm aspects of each region are the best and only way to provide effective aid to these places in need.
