A priority that cannot be understated

An important piece of any project, especially one involving repair and restoration, is to ensure there is adequate training. Over the past year, Lambi Fund held 14 training sessions averaging 31 participants each.  There were 439 participants in total.  Trainings were conducted to improve organizational capacity building, management capacity, storage of grain, techniques for animal husbandry. There were 4 special two-day trainings on how to construct a tree nursery.  123 men and women completed the trainings and continue to work with a nursery. They fill bags for seedlings, plant and maintain them until the trees are large enough to be transplanted in permanent spaces.

"After the trees are transplanted from the nursery to their permanent spaces, we will continue to monitor the survival of the trees," said Marie, one of the nursery volunteers. Trees help protect the fields from flooding during the hurricane season and are an important element of sustainable agriculture.

Our challenges are many from reaching farmers in remote areas to coping with a changing climate and seeking to improve collaboration to improve the quality of life for farmers in rural areas.  In spite of the growing chaos in Haiti, we remain hopeful to see the type of commitment that is expressed across the country asking for the right to employment, the right to improving one’s capacity to achieve one’s goals of education and livelihood and the appropriate management of the public trust. We appreciate the support of Global Giving donors to address the goal of sustainable development and the improvement in quality of life in Haiti.
