Initiative Development (ID) was born in Haïti, with the revival of a group of projects transfered by the French NGO, Inter Aide, in 1994. Since then, Initiative Development (ID) has expanded its activities in the lower Northwest.  This rural area is considered to be one of the poorest in the country. Its problems include erosion, climatic variations, and isolation which encourages rural exodus to Port au Prince, the capital, and closer villages in the Gonaïves and Port-de-Paix.  In fact, economic activities are virtual nonexistent and trade has decreased.  The majority of the population lives off of modest food and charcoal production, and money transfers from a major diaspora.  In 2005, Initiative Development (ID) supported the launch of the Haitian NGO, ADEMA.  They then assisted the association with organization until 2009, the year in which Initiative Development (ID) transfered several projects to ADEMA.  Today, the two associations partner to lead most of their operations.  In particular, since the municipal elections in 2006, they have helped the communities of Jean Rable, Bombardopolis, and Môle-Saint-Nicolas to expand and manage development projects in their territories.  Initiative Development (ID) would like to gradually relocate its activities to the upper Northwest (around Port de Paix), in order to increase the visibility of ADEMA for its beneficiaries and partners while maintaining the geographical proximity which aids collaborations and exchanges in areas of combined operations (local development, education).
