Summary

Goats are "A Haitian's Best Friend." Owning a goat is a sustainable way for a struggling family to increase their income through goat breeding and sale of offspring in markets.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Goats make a big difference in Haiti. They provide a great source of protein and income. Thanks to the self-sufficient projects run by grassroots groups that partner with Lambi Fund, members who once lived meal to meal are now able to get things they could only dream of before — education, health care, dignity and self-respect.

How will this project solve this problem?

If we provide 132 goats, supplies and training to the organization Asosyasyon pou Pwoteksyon Anviwonnman Gwomòn (APEG), 160 members will pass on their knowledge and new goats to others so that it becomes a self-perpetuating sustainable enterprise.

Potential Long Term Impact

With the extra income provided by the sale of goats at the market, children will have steady meals, improved health, go to school and have hope for the future. More importantly, 160 members will become self-sufficient.
