Where Did The Money Go?

The Lambi Fund of Haiti

Supporting economic justice, democracy and sustainable development in Haiti

What has your charity done in Haiti?

Nearly $1 million in emergency grants and agricultural support to Haitian partners.

What are the outcomes (immediate results) of your efforts in Haiti?

Emergency grants provided to 45 grassroots organizations- thousands of Haitians assisted.

Based on your outcomes thus far, has your charity adjusted its course of action to improve the results?

Lambi Fund continues to work with local partners where they identify their need and we assist them in providing the support they need.

Is your charity planning to continue to provide assistance to Haiti in the coming months and years? If so, please explain your plans.

Lambi Fund WILL be in Haiti for the long-term. We've been working in Haiti for 16+ years and plan to be part of the long-term rebuilding process by expanding local agriculture, strengthening small business enterprises, building latrines, community-led reforestation, training programs and more. http://www.lambifund.org/EarthquakePriorities.shtml

What do you anticipate will be the biggest challenges facing the people of Haiti in the years to come? Do you have suggestions for how to address these challenges both via your own organization and through the efforts of others?

The government and big NGOs overlooking the needs of the poor majority. i.e. The top-down approach to development where outsiders prioritize rebuilding "needs" as opposed to working with the local community to assess and identify the best plan for the future. Working to amplify the Haitian voice in rebuilding has been an important component of Lambi Fund's work post-quake. Partnering with community organizations to strengthen their work, their voice, and local democracy is an important way to build civil society and to address this problem.

Have you been able to coordinate and pool your efforts with other organizations?

Yes, Lambi Fund worked with a number of NGO's and organizations post-quake to distribute emergency supplies to earthquake survivors. For example, Lambi Fund distributed tents and supplies donated by Hope for Haiti and distributed medications donated by UUSC. In addition, Lambi Fund is partnering with Water.org to build hundreds of latrines in Northwestern Haiti.
