Rebuilding Haiti - The Road to Recovery

Commitment by

World Vision

In 2010, World Vision committed to expand its efforts to rebuild Haiti by supporting the creation of wealth through employment. From September 1, 2010 to September 1, 2013, World Vision will scale up its program to provide short-term employment through Cash for Work (CfW) activities with a longer-term goal of creating sustainable jobs through innovative approaches, such as watershed management and vocational training. Through this commitment, World Vision hopes to partner with U.S. based businesses that will create employment and livelihood diversification to 150,000 Haitians. Examples range from individual skills such as producing crafts to vocational training for remote business operations processes. As such, World Vision also committed to collaborating with the local and international community to support the efforts of recovery and reconstruction in Haiti.
