{{Economic Justice}}

Landless peasants in Haiti are often forced into sharecropping agreements with wealthy landowners.

The peasants pay all the expenses for farming the land and do all the work; they then pay half their harvest for the use of the land! Lambi Fund helps peasant organizations set up self-sustaining community-run enterprises so they can control their own livelihood.

{{Democracy}}
Integrated into all Lambi Fund projects is the opportunity to reinforce indigenous democratic practices.

The Lambi Fund focuses on the grassroots level through four mechanisms: community organizing, organizational development, civic participation, and promoting leadership by women.

{{Faith & Hope}}
Lambi Fund can work with your church or congregation to help our neighbors in Haiti by raising support and awareness about Haiti and the Lambi Fund through:

Proven Outcomes
More than 76,896 entrepreneurial participants have impacted 1,222,145 Haitians!

Lambi Fund creates change through: improved economic conditions, increased availability of food, reduced soil erosion, improved environment, increased availability of potable water, increased gender equity, improved democratic functioning, improved management, and collaboration among grassroots organizations.

Why Lambi Fund Works
The Lambi Fund's original, bottom-up development model succeeds because it relies on Haitians themselves to determine the needs and the most effective solutions in each community. The Lambi Fund's emphasis on democracy, a community's actual needs, and peasant-led solutions ensures more successful outcomes.

Alternative Sustainable Development
Most projects require many months to turn them into comprehensive community-run entrepreneurial activities with components for reforestation, sustainable development training, democratic methods,a micro-credit fund, project management skills training and gender equity! It becomes a holistic solution that creates lasting change in economic development, environmental sustainability and social equality. Lambi Fund works because of our bottom-up collaborative model.

Peasant Led Community-Based Programs
The Lambi Fund model is a three-prong approach that melds:

Sustainable development utilizing organic agricultural methods and micro-credit programs
Reforestation — tree planting, tree nurseries, agro forestry practices, and water access projects
Organizational and leadership development
All of this is done with a bottom up theory of change working in partnership with established peasant organizations.
