Sa je pa wè, kè pa santi.
What the eye doesn't see, the heart doesn't feel. (Haitian proverb)
While traveling through the countryside, we will meet with local grassroots organizations. Through Lambi Fund's support, these groups are creating small-scale sustainable projects that are making a tremendous difference in the lives of their members and their communities. In what is sure to be a moving and inspiring experience, we will spend three days in the Northwest visiting sustainable agriculture, fishing, potable water, and grain mill projects and talking with Haitian peasants that run these local enterprises.
Join us for an unforgettable trip that can change the way you see the world!

This fee includes all hotel accommodations, meals, transportation within Haiti, and translation and guide services.

"Our group had a wonderful trip and came away with an avid appreciation for Lambi Fund's work and the communities with which it is partnering. One organization in particular (an animal husbandry project) really made an impression -- we were blown away by the members' enthusiasm, energy, hospitality, optimism, and potential."
