In light of Monsanto's recent $4 million donation in seeds to Haiti, many are asking whether or not the Lambi Fund of Haiti uses GMO seeds.
Lambi Fund uses only organic seeds that are indigenous to Haiti. In efforts to increase agriculture sustainability, Lambi
Fund works with local farmers to teach organic farming methods that improve crop outputs and protect the environment. In fact, Lambi Fund is proud to partner with thousands of peasant farmers throughout Haiti who promote sustainable agriculture in Haiti through the use of seed banks. Seed banks allow Haitian communities to plant high-quality, inexpensive seeds year after year.
Providing Haitians with seeds for a seed bank and sustainable, organic agriculture training empowers farmers to feed Haitian communities themselves.
The Lambi Fund of Haiti, does not and will not use GMO or hybrid seeds from Monsanto or any other similar corporation. All of Lambi Fund's agriculture programs will continue in partnership with local Haitian farmers' organizations and in promotion of local, indigenous seeds.
