New projects are helping rebuild Haiti

Lambi Fund recently approved the launch of eight new projects that are helping move rural communities in Haiti along the long path towards recovery.  

One of these new projects is a partnership with members of SADN to launch an ox-plow service.  Lambi Fund will be working with this rural grassroots organization in Haiti to fund the purchase of oxen, plows, tools, and to provide the training necessary to operate an ox-plow service.  The exciting thing about this project is that members in SADN's community will now have an easy and affordable way to plow their fields.  Currently, farmers in the area cultivate their crops by hand.  This back-breaking work is extremely time consuming and many farmers do not manage to plow their fields in time for planting season.  

This ox-plow service will plow fields in mere minutes: freeing up the farmer's time to work on other tasks and to plant and cultivate even more land.  Ultimately, more food will be grown and farmers will have more of their harvests to sell in the local market.  This means the entire community wins!
