Strengthening Organizations through Training

Members of the Organization of Farmers from Besi and Klona (OPKB) have received valuable training in numerous training sessions.  This includes:

A training that was provided for 25 members on animal selection, caring for the animals (veterinary agent and pharmacy), and animal feed.

A training was provided on managing a microcredit fund for 25 members which covered: setting up a managing committee, the principles of microcredit lending, record keeping, and the documentation of loans.

A training was provided on organizational capacity building for 25 members.  Topics included membership engagement, how to engage members to make the organization stronger, transparency, gender equity and civic engagement.

Each of these workshops have provided OPKB members with valuable skills that are making the organization stronger and the daily operations of their ox-plow service efficient and effective.

Breeding sheep and rebuilding

A very happy and healthy sheep!
A very happy and healthy sheep!

It’s been just over a year and a half since the earthquake.  This means that the Lambi Fund of Haiti has fully transitioned into long-term rebuilding mode.  Eight new projects are starting throughout the country that will strengthen communities and create important means for sustainable incomes.

One such project is a sheep breeding project in Sothern Haiti.  The Bedo Peasants Together organization (TKB) wants to raise and breed sheep in an effort to increase incomes for its members.  In all 44 sheep will be purchased to start breeding.  Training in sheep farming, veterinary care and on the importance of caring for the environment while raising animals will be provided in a series of workshops – which will ensure members are trained to manage the project for long-term success. 

Your continued support for long-term rebuilding efforts in Haiti make small business enterprises like this one possible!   The sheep will be purchased and sufficient training on sheep care and management will be administered thanks to donations like yours.  An easy way to continue to make rebuilding in Haiti possible is to lend your support by sharing this project with friends and family members.  The more we rally together, the more we can help a community organization like TKB get their development project off the ground.

Lambi Fund runs microcredit workshops

An important part of rebuilding after the earthquake has been providing rural communities with the capital they need to make investments in their economies and small business enterprises.  Funding community-led microcredit enterprises is just the beginning.  Lambi Fund has been busy running microcredit workshops that teach rural Haitians how to manage, lend money and operate these local credit funds.  Providing these organizational leaders with the bookkeeping and financial skills necessary to maintain a local microcredit fund is an essential competent in ensuring the fund is a sustainable service available to everyone in the organization.  An added bonus is that once these affordable loans are paid back, even more money is available to be loaned out to other members of the community to make purchases for their small business and farming needs.
