A pig can make a big difference in Haiti. No pig means no money. For years, as conditions worsened in Haiti, the number of pigs dwindled. Now, thanks to the self-sufficient projects run by grassroots groups that partner with Lambi Fund, families who once lived meal to meal are now able to get things they could only dream of before - education, health care, dignity and self-respect. Therefore, grassroots groups in Haiti want to start self-sufficient pig breeding enterprises.
If we provide breeding pigs, supplies and training for members of grassroots groups in Haiti, they will pass on their knowledge and new piglets to other members so that it becomes a self-perpetuating enterprise for self-sufficiency.
With the extra income provided by the sale of fattened pigs at market, children will have steady meals, improved health, go to school and have hope for the future. More importantly, more families will become self-sufficient.
