50% of Children in Haiti Do Not Attend School
Education is a key component to fighting poverty. When any segment of society is poorly educated, the entire community suffers. REBUILD globally currently supports two initiatives that alleviate barriers to education by making it accessible and affordable.
The Elev Program
The Elèv Program supports vulnerable youth in Port au Prince with a full education scholarship and job skills training. Our program finances the education of thirty seven students. To best fight the war on poverty, we work hand in hand with our Haitian social business, deux mains designs, to offer a dignified living wage job to each graduate. In Haiti, as in most parts of the developing world, if a student cannot pay for school, they cannot attend and complete this important first step in life. Some of our students have tried to graduate for years, but are held back due to lack of funding. With your help, REBUILD globally takes on the finance so the students can focus on their education.
