A crash course in changing the world.
The goal of this mission was to find a news story on the womenwatch web site. While I was on this site I discovered something that I thought was of more import. The site contains a rather comprehensive sub site on the situation in Haiti. There are various topics on this site that have to do with reproductive health and harm reduction. Finding this site lead me to wonder if there were any NGO's operating in Haiti that had women’s rights as a main focus. It was at that point I discovered the Lambi Fund.
Not only is this group active in clean water initiatives and entrepreneurial development, they are also active in women’s rights issues. The Lambi fund will be my area of focus in the act portion of this mission.
