Lambi Fund Overview and Programs
The Lambi Fund supports projects that embrace the following principles: non-violence, non-partisan, community-based, promoting the advancement of women, using education and training for empowerment, and promoting the overall democratic movement. Each community organization that we partner with promotes one of the following program initiatives:
: Sustainable agricultural projects help increase food security and income for peasant families. Many of these projects benefit women, who bear more of the burden in the agricultural economy.
Community Credit Funds
: Members of a community organization band together to form collective micro-enterprise funds to provide one another with much needed capital to start self-sustaining community projects.
: In rural Haiti, wealth is measured in pigs and goats. For years, as conditions worsened in Haiti, the number of pigs and goats dwindled. 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.
: The conservation of Haiti's waning natural resources is central to all Lambi Fund projects. Community cisterns and irrigation systems help communities secure safe and efficient water supplies while community reforestation projects curb deforestation — the most rapid in the Western Hemisphere.
Organizational and Leadership Training
: Alongside our routine technical and management training programs, Lambi Fund provides organizational and leadership development training programs for peasant organizations and women's associations.
: The Lambi Fund of Haiti is always seeking new community organizations to partner with to bring economic opportunities and promote sustainable development to rural Haiti. Click here to read about our new projects.
