Gearing up for a new planting season

It is an important time of year in Haiti – its planting season.  Members of ROJETAT are gearing up to plant crops and maximize the use of their land.  Thanks to invaluable support by donors like you, ROJETAT is ready to utilize the use of ox-plows to cultivate and prepare their land.  Newly purchase oxen and a plow will help Haitian farmers plow their fields in a timely and efficient manner.  Previous years’ planting seasons have been a stressful and back-breaking time for Haitians who were left to plow their fields by hand using hoes.  The introduction of an ox-plow service is quickly making this tough reality a thing of the past!

Help continue to support Haitian peasants like members of ROJETAT as they strive for improved methods to cultivate their fields and increase crop outputs.  Empowering entire communities towards greater self-sufficiency and food security is an investment well made.

Moving forward, one step at a time.

Communities in rural Haiti are hard at work rebuilding their lives post-earthquake.  The signs of recovery are small and sometimes easy to miss – but they are there.  Take for instance members of the Center for Plantain Propagation (CPP) in Northwest Haiti.  This cooperative of over 1,000 farmers is teaching members the cutting edge PIF method for cultivating and planting plantains.  This is allowing farmers throughout the region to harvest bountiful crops of plantains that they can sell in the markets. 

                Haitians are looking to strengthen their economic livelihoods after the earthquake and the CPP is a perfect example of how communities are working together and making this goal a reality.  Thanks to your support, the Lambi Fund of Haiti is continuing our partnership with the Center for Plantain Propagation and entering the next phase of the project.  Here, members are looking to increase the value of their goods by transforming raw plantains into processed goods like plantain chips.  These tasty snacks are incredibly popular throughout Haiti and organization members have already began selling the chips at local schools and markets.  By supporting community-run enterprises like these, you are helping Haitians improve their livelihoods and strengthen local economies.  Now, this is where the rebuilding really begins!
