Community Development

WITH DIGNITY AND THROUGH HARD WORK

Community Development is one of the main ways that we reach out our community in our part of Haiti. Département Développement Lemuel, or DDL, is Lemuel's Community Development branch. This incredible team of people strives to improve lives in Jesus' name with dignity through hard work. Flip through the slides below to see some of the many facets of DDL.

CURRENT AND ONGOING PROJECTS

WATER SOLUTIONS

Lemuel is constantly looking for solutions to the complex water shortage on the Plateau.  No single solution will solve the problem so Lemuel must address the issue from many angles. 

 

 

 

 

TEMPORARY WORK

Temporary Work programs enable Lemuel to provide short-term work for men and women in our community and surrounding areas, while also accomplishing important community development projects.

FAMILY EMPOWERMENT

Helping families build cisterns and latrines improves sanitation and quality of life.  Less time procuring water also means families have more time to put into other beneficial activities.

THE TRACTOR PROJECT

PROJECT COMPLETED!

This dream has been realized! 

As you can see in the photo above the backhoe-loader is hard at work in the rainwater catchment holes!




 

REFORESTATION INITIATIVES

From its earliest days on the Plateau, Lemuel has been dedicated to reforesting our community.  As our trees have grown, more and more people have caught this vision and are joining in tree-planting.



 

ECONOMIC STIMULATION

Lemuel is always looking for ways to generate income for our community.  This not only provides work for more people, but brings circulating capital into the community.  This, in turn, stimulates other business endeavors.
