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.
Lambi Fund is not a first responder, but a second responder. Meaning we will be there long after the relief service providers leave working to REBUILD Haiti. Our first step will be to help members of peasant groups get food and essentials for their families to re-establish their lives.
Deliver food and essentials; Replace staff belongings; Recapitalize micro–credit funds run by peasant organizations; Rebuild grain mills, sugar cane and other economic development enterprises; Repair rainwater cisterns; and replenish livestock.
Provide not only immediate assistance in areas such as food and shelter, but also help rebuild the lives of citizens in the long run.
We're not first-responders like the Red Cross. We're not aid people. We're second-responders. We help people rebuild. And there's going to be plenty of that. - Karen Ashmore, Executive Director
