Haiti School Initiative: Students Rebuild

Commitment by

Architecture for Humanity

In 2010, Architecture for Humanity committed to rebuilding safe, sustainable, transitional, and permanent learning spaces, to replace those that were destroyed by the 2010 earthquake in Haiti; this will enable 3,000 students to return to school. In partnership with StudentsRebuild.org and Global Philanthropy Group, the schools will be built with funds raised for students by students. More than 50 teams of students around the world will participate in every aspect of the design of the schools, from concept to completion. A companion curriculum and website will allow the students in Haiti to connect with other schools around the world and tell their stories as their schools are rebuilt.
