Summary

In rural Haiti, wealth is measured in pigs. Owning a pig means your children get health care and go to school. Help families rise out of poverty by buying a pig for them to raise.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

A pig can make a big difference in Haiti. No pig means no money. For years, as conditions worsened in Haiti, the number of pigs dwindled. Now, thanks to the self-sufficient projects run by grassroots groups that partner with Lambi Fund, families 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. Therefore, a grassroots group in Kasis, Haiti, wants to start a self-sufficient pig breeding enterprise.

How will this project solve this problem?

If we provide 27 breeding pigs, supplies and training for 55 members of the grassroots group in Kasis, they will pass on their knowledge and new piglets to other members so that it becomes a self-perpetuating enterprise for self-sufficiency.

Potential Long Term Impact

With the extra income provided by the sale of fattened pigs at market, children will have steady meals, improved health, go to school and have hope for the future. More importantly, 55 families will become self-sufficient.
