About us

MISSION

To improve the quality of life for people in distressed communities by using techniques to promote education, gainful employment, agriculture and community development.

VISION

A world where all people have the resources and opportunities to live in harmony with themselves, their community, and their planet.

HISTORY

In response to the devastating earthquake of January 12, 2010, REBUILD globally (RG) was established to improve the lives of those most affected in Port-au-Prince, Haiti via the provision of education and living wage employment opportunities.

RG was founded in an effort to support the most vulnerable populations of Haiti. Our initiative is to address the critical issues of unemployment in the adult population and the conditions of destitute children living on Haiti's streets; both seen by us as a result of lack of access to education. As recommended by the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti, RG's methods align with a rights-based approach to relief and reconstruction. Our product is sandals, however our impact runs deeper than the streets and waterways we are keeping clean. Our artisans, apprentices, and street children are equipped with trade skills, English classes and entrepreneurial training that is invaluable to supporting their return to independent living.

Through our mission we strive to create livelihood and education opportunities in underserved communities by using techniques focused on environmentally friendly practices, community-driven development and dignified employment. RG's two primary goals focus on self-sufficiency at the individual level, and environmentally-conscious practices at the community level. Our two primary goals are to:

  1. Provide a living-wage, "green" employment providing individuals with the dignity of independence and self-sufficiency thru reducing waste in Haiti by creative re-purposing of recyclable materials.
  2. Create pathways out of poverty for homeless children and youth in Haiti through education, life skills and technical training
