Sustainability Initiatives

“Helping Haitians help themselves for the long haul…”

Here at Love A Child (LAC), we focus energy and resources on helping families do more than simply subsist on charity. In fact, our highest goal is to help the Haitian people become working, viable members of society, and create sustainable improvements in their living conditions.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

 

The highest form of helping people is to help them develop their own full potential for creating a sustainable improvement in their living conditions.

 

LAC’s model relies upon six interdependent elements working together to promote self-sufficiency in order to break the cycle of poverty.

 

All six sustainability projects currently being implemented in Haiti are listed below. From agricultural training classes to help improve food security, to simple tools like a rocket stove to help improve food supply.  Love A Child is helping to create jobs, improve soil, and increase crop yields for families across Haiti. Please click on the images below for more details.

Most organizations are only attempting to solve for one, maybe two elements contributing to the chronic cyclical poverty. LAC’s approach is unique because we have identified and address 6 major elements which operate together to foster the chronic cyclical poverty. If we tried to only treat 1 or 2 at a time, the other would still defeat our efforts.  When we address the 6 major causes simultaneously we have a better chance of changing lives for the long term.
