1000jobsHaiti was founded in 2008 with one purpose – to fight extreme poverty in Haiti by working to create sustainable jobs at fair wages.
Since unemployment and underemployment affect over 75% of the Haitian population and are the main causes of the grinding poverty so pervasive in Haiti, it makes sense to us to attack these twin social and economic maladies directly by focusing our resources on job creation. Thus all our programs have the same goal – job creation.
Philanthropic Shopping for a Cause
When working with women’s groups, who do artisanal work, our focus is on the long term sustainability of the job. Thus we measure our results not only by the number of jobs provided in a project, but also by the progress toward sustainability of the activity. We are not in the charity business. We are in the opportunity business. Instead of, or in addition to making a charitable donation to Haiti, you can now shop for the philanthropic cause of supporting the working women there to thrive, not just survive.
The faces that you see on this website are the faces of our partners in this work – not the recipients of charity.
