Summary

Help Lambi Fund of Haiti expand sustainable agriculture projects to help rural communities feed their families and increase incomes.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Expanding rural communities' capacity to grow food is critical to long-term development in Haiti. Food imports continue to flood the country - making food costs high and quality low. Strengthening local food production not only provides a means of income for rural farmers, but increases food security for the entire country.

How will this project solve this problem?

Sustainable agriculture projects strengthen food production by training rural farmers in organic farming methods that increase crop productivity, restore and protect Haiti's environment, and increase crop yields. In addition to training, additional resources are imperative. Community credit funds that provide farmers with low-interest loans and grain mills contribute to strengthening food production in Haiti.

Potential Long Term Impact

Growing Haiti's capacity for local food production will not only improve food security, but will create a vibrant local food economy that employs farmers and merchants throughout the island.
