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.

CARE was founded in 1945 when 22 American organizations came together to rush lifesaving CARE Packages to survivors of World War II. Thousands of Americans, including President Harry S. Truman, contributed to the effort. On May 11, 1946, the first 15,000 packages reached the battered port of Le Havre, France.
These early packages were U.S. Army surplus “10-in-1” food parcels intended to provide one meal for 10 soldiers during the planned invasion of Japan. We obtained them at the end of the war and began a service that let Americans send the packages to friends and families in Europe, where millions were in danger of starvation. Ten dollars bought a CARE Package and guaranteed that its addressee would receive it within four months.
We stand together. For dignity. For equality. For justice.
Everyone is equal in the sight of God. Yet we live in a world where poverty still persists.
Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of their dignity and lets injustice thrive. But together we have the power to transform lives.
For over 70 years, we’ve been standing with the poorest of our neighbors. We work in 37 countries, with people of all faiths and none, to stand up for dignity, equality, and justice.
