Lambi fund first helped members of peasant groups get food and essentials for their families following the earthquake. Now, Lambi Fund is working with local organizations to build community-led enterprises, provide technical training and to promote Haiti's long term development.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The earthquake in Haiti was several years ago, but the rebuilding continues. A critical component of building a stronger Haiti requires strengthening rural communities throughout the countryside.
How will this project solve this problem?
Provide grassroots organizations in Haiti with the tools and resources they need to make identified priorities a reality. This means strengthening local food production efforts through sustainable agriculture, providing access to affordable credit through locally managed community credit funds and creating income producing opportunities like goat breeding projects.
Potential Long Term Impact
These efforts will build a solid foundation throughout Haiti for self-sufficiency and improved livelihoods. As communities unite to realize the strength of the community, they become stewards of their own future, innovators, and champions for a stronger Haiti.
