Extollo is helping unleash Haiti’s potential to build a stronger future by training a construction workforce of character and capability, while adding strength and safety to Haiti’s infrastructure
Why does Haiti stay so poor?
Billions of dollars of foreign aid has poured into Haiti with little to show for it. This is largely because that money has come to do for Haitians what, with a little help in expertise, they could have done for themselves. This is the biggest difference between aid and development. As a result, 74% of Haitians are either unemployed or under-employed and 8.5 million live on less than $2.41 per day.
Give them a fish.
Aid is designed to help with immediate needs. As important as that is at times, aid is not the solution to Haiti’s long term challenges. The Haitian people are the solution to Haiti’s problems, particularly those who have the skills and character to build a stronger Haiti for all.
Teach them to fish.
By helping men and women gain the skills to build, train, and lead, you have the power to unleash Haiti’s potential to create a stronger future. Through Extollo’s unique approach to development you will help build stronger careers, stronger families, stronger communities, and a stronger infrastructure for all Haitians.
