Construction for a Grain Storage Unit Launched!

Lambi Fund partners
Lambi Fund partners

As part of Lambi Fund’s new projects for 2012, we are partnering with the Youth Association of Sel (AJS).   This partnership is an effort to build a grain storage unit and to launch a community credit fund in Sel, Haiti.  Lambi Fund is in the initial phase of helping AJS build a grain storage unit and is providing the capital needed to purchase seeds and to start a community credit fund.  In the coming months, members of AJS will be trained on how to manage a microcredit fund, organizational capacity building, project management and how to operate a storage grain mill.  This project will help 50 farmers purchase high-quality and affordable seeds for their crops while reviving local agriculture and providing more opportunities for employment in the community.  This is an exciting first step in strengthening food security in rural Haiti!
