Challenge

A pig or goat can make a big difference in Haiti. Owning a pig or a goat means your children can eat well and go to school. For years, as conditions worsened in Haiti, the number of pigs and goats dwindled. Now, thanks to the self-sufficient projects run by grassroots groups that partner with Lambi Fund, pig and goat farming are again on the rise. Families who once lived meal-to-meal are now able to get things they could only dream of before — education, health care, and even a full stomach.

Solution

35 families of a small church in Dewonsre will get their own breeding pig or goat. With your help, Lambi will buy 21 pigs, 20 goats, food for the animals, and vet training for the farmers to learn how to keep the pigs and goats healthy.

Long-Term Impact

With the extra income provided by the sale of fattened pigs and goats at market, children will have steady meals, improved health, go to school and have hope for the future. More importantly, families will be self-sufficient.
