The concept of Smart Villages is a global modern approach for off-grid communities. The vision behind this concept is to assist policy makers, donors and socio-economic planners for rural electrification worldwide, with special focus on Asian and African countries.
Smart Villages engage in efforts to combat the real barriers to energy access in villages with technological, financial and educational methodology, particularly in developing countries.
Haiti could benefit enormously from the formation of an inclusive socio-economic and financial Think Tank where creative and revolutionary ideas could be explored, tested against benchmarks and where appropriate, put into practice.
The Think Tank is a logical development for LSL World Initiative. As a private company focusing on social and economic impacts and transformation, LSL works with governments to provide solutions for them to implement their own funding mechanisms.
Dr. Louis G. Lamothe Foundation
In December 2015, Lamothe founded the Louis G. Lamothe Foundation (FLGL) in honour and memory of his father, Louis G. Lamothe. The Foundation will concentrate on implementing strategies that will lead Haiti to emerging country status by 2041.
Laurent Lamothe created the Foundation to help fight poverty in Haiti and to carry on his father’s work in transforming the country. The Foundation have very recently launched a sustainable agriculture project in Nan Panyòl. It is also planning to rebuild a school in this locality, as well as the main road, to facilitate travelling and to enable the community to get its agricultural goods to market quicker.
Louis Lamothe loved the people of Haiti and the Foundation is determined to carry his passion on.
