Training community organization members
A major event compelled a major shift and greater effort in meeting the needs of a defined constituency. The earthquake increased the gap in services due to the magnitude of destruction it left behind. For the last five years, Lambi Fund has expanded its project with great focus on the environment, micro enterprises for women and farmers; increasing training building needed skills in management and specialty needs like mill mechanics, animal handlers and veterinary technicians.
During 2015 Lambi Fund increased the training capacity of 23 farming community organizations in rural Haiti. 192 members (113 men and 79 women) in 6 projects on animal husbandry, received management training as well as animal care with a veterinarian. The training last 5 days for the animal care hands on and the management component lasted 2 days. 4 projects that focused on community loan fund receivedto manage contracts, accounting for loan management and credit portfolio management. 3 out of 3 organizions were women focused and women led. Trainees numbered 161 of which 15 men and 146 women.The four sustainable agriculture project trained 139 persons (110 women 29 men) in transformation of fruits and Oxplowing. The overwheming majority of women are involved in transformation of fruits. The environment is a major priority and with donor partnership we were able to provide nursery techniques training for 214 persons (114 men and 100 women).
When Lambi Fund assesses the number of organizations that are functioning over the last 22 years, each trained individual becomes an asset to the community and contributes to its growth.
