building nurseries for reforrestation in Haiti
The contribution to longterm rebuilding in Haiti, after the eartquake, was ccentered on building shelter, provide water, feeding people who were under tents. Unfortunately there are still a few thousands of person who are still living under a tent. What was a temporary situation has become a permanent one. A s we work mostly in agriculture, food security and skills development, we are very aware that the environment namely reforrestation in Haiti is a priority indeed. Surviving to rebuild longterm means that the environment that support our food production, our shelter from the natural elements is a major priority as we assess haiti's level of erosion, draining of the soil must be addressed to aarrive at the goalof long term rebuilding and rekindle hope among the most affected people by the devastating earthquake.
Towards this goal, the Lambi fund has been involved in reforresting in partnership with rural farmers whose lives continue to be impacted and whose vision is longterm rebuilding. In 2018 the hope is invested in the planting of 406,000 of trees. Here is a profile of each of our partners and their set goals. As we move through the midyear, we are on target having seeded 65% of our goal for 2018.
