Breeding Goats is a Viable Venture in Haiti

Kid goats!
Kid goats!

In order to facilitate long-term rebuilding and growth, Lambi Fund has been working with community organizations throughout Haiti on a variety of projects.  One such venture is with The Peasant Organization of Bige (OPB) to launch a goat breeding enterprise.  Lambi Fund has been training OPB members on modern goat breeding techniques, forage production and project management.  They have also built pens and enclosures for the goats to graze in.  Throughout Haiti’s countryside, goats are left to roam free and Haiti’s delicate environment is destroyed as a result.  These efforts to build pens and grazing enclosures are promoting Haiti’s environment while also providing the goats with all the food they need! …now isn’t this picture of two kid goats just the cutest?
