The Refugee Crisis
REBUILD globally is creating jobs for displaced refugees in Haiti.
Policy changes in the Dominican Republic have allowed authorities to deport Dominican-born individuals of Haitian descent. As a result, thousands of families are fleeing the Dominican Republic, by fear or force, many of whom have no current ties to Haiti, nowhere to go, and no feasible way to start over. REBUILD globally is working to create opportunities for dignified income in border towns where many refugee families are currently residing.
In partnership with the United Nations, REBUILD globally is building a workshop to provide training and income generating opportunities for 34 individuals at the refugee camp of Fonds Bayard. Refugee families are currently 100% dependent on charity and have little hope of escaping this vicious cycle of generational poverty. By providing jobs, REBUILD globally is looking to break this cycle and provide dozens of families with a chance to improve their current condition.
We are targeting the root problem – the lack of job readiness and long-term employment.
