Giving Guide 2023: WORK

WORK is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to accompany families in Haiti out of poverty through good, dignified jobs. We use a holistic approach created alongside our families to accompany them to financial independence. Our wrap-around service model includes access to medical care, education assistance for all school-aged children, and professional development and business investment opportunities for adults. 

Our goal is simple: to place two heads of households into dignified work so that they can pull themselves out of poverty forever. We focus on income-generating work that builds infrastructure in the communities we serve. These small businesses address access to produce and household items, fill in transportation gaps, support home repairs,  and allow access to renewable energy. Some of the families we serve are also informal waste workers who reclaim recyclable plastics and metals to divert them from the environment. These raw materials are then sold to brands like HP and CPI Card Group, who turn them into new products for consumers worldwide. 

The families we serve graduate with a living income that allows them to take care of their loved ones and save for their future. When they graduate, they stick around as mentors and lend a helping hand to the next family in need.
