We want to change the conversation and be honest about what effective poverty alleviation looks like by investing in local businesses and purchasing supplies in Haiti.
Shopkeepers and market vendors have been put out of business because of foreign aid organizations flooding the market with donations, such as clothing and school supplies. Paternalism ruins economies. We believe that through in-country purchasing, as well as hiring local workers, we can participate in strengthening the economy in Haiti.
We are very passionate about rethinking the way we do "charity" work. Our goal is to establish relationships and work in community together as equals.
