Thanks for your support. This project is now complete.
In rural Haiti, wealth is measured in pigs and goats. For years, as conditions worsened in Haiti, the number of pigs and goats dwindled. Raising livestock can be very effective as a self-sustaining enterprise because the animals reproduce, help with labor (oxen, for example, can transport goods and plow fields), and produce such consumable products as milk and eggs, all of which can improve the financial situation of a community. Thanks to the self-sufficient projects run by grassroots groups, pig and goat breeding is again on the rise and contributing to the economic development of rural communities.
In the past, members of Association for the Development of Kasis (ADZK) wanted to improve the breeding of pigs in their area by improving member’s knowledge of better breeding techniques. Lambi supported a pig breeding project that enabled 55 members to own their own breeding pig.Lambi Fund provided funds to buy 27 pigs, establish a veterinary pharmacy, supply food for the animals and conduct training for the farmers. The members successfully raised pigs and sold them at market which helped pay for school fees and health care fees.
