REBUILD globally is a nonprofit organization promoting prosperity by growing an educated and skilled workforce in Haiti and ensuring dignified employment.
A world without poverty where all people are empowered through dignified work opportunities.
REBUILD globally was born from the disaster of the 2010 Haiti earthquake and survived in its wake by embarking on a mission to provide a sustainable, entrepreneurial solution for survivors.
REBUILD globally is a non-profit organization fighting poverty in Haiti through education and job training programs. We address the complex issues of poverty by identifying the most vulnerable populations and targeting the root problem – the lack of education and job readiness. Our goal is to replace the conventional methods of charitable aid with a thriving social entrepreneurial ecosystem. After years of working in the most vulnerable communities, we have found the most impactful way to lessen the effects of poverty is through our social enterprise model that combine the efforts of our non-profit organization with our for-profit ethical fashion business.
In 2015, REBUILD globally incubated a locally owned for-profit social business, deux mains, a social impact factory that handcrafts sandals and accessories from upcycled tires and high-quality leathers.
Our model has proven that income generation is a sustainable way for people to transition from desperation and dependency to one of self-sustainability. REBUILD globally and deux mains are working hand in hand to change the system that keeps poor people impoverished. Our employment opportunities pay 220% of the minimum full-time Haitian wage and offer business equity to our craftsmen and women.
REBUILD globally provides job training and leadership development as a pathway to prosperity. Every individual who graduates from our programs transition into dignified employment at deux mains. Hand in hand, we are empowering the world’s most vulnerable help themselves fight poverty.
