Communitere is an innovative non-profit, pioneering an effective international model for sustainable disaster recovery. We create dynamic, collaborative hubs in affected communities that make a powerful impact by giving individuals the means to become self-reliant.
Our proven grassroots approach involves an active, experienced, on-the-ground presence with a focus on providing the resources, processes and tools required to empower local communities to take an active role in the renewal of their own community. In addition, we are committed to bridging the gap between individuals who are willing to help and organizations that can effect change. Central to that commitment is the notion that communication, information and strategic partnerships are vital to effective emergency response, recovery and renewal of affected communities.
Communitere has been on the ground in Haiti since the 2010 earthquake and in the Philippines since the super typhoon hit in 2013.
