As we near the anniversary of the January 12th earthquake in Haiti, I’m thrilled to share the incredible rebuilding work being done by a youth-powered initiative called Students Rebuild.
Students Rebuild is a call to action for students and educators worldwide to help rebuild stronger, safer, permanent schools in Haiti. It combines a $500,000 matching challenge grant from the Bezos Family Foundation with Architecture for Humanity‘s international design and reconstruction expertise and Global Nomads Group‘s worldwide network of students and educators to activate our greatest creative resource — young people. From walk-a-thons to rock concerts, hundreds of kids have raised critical funds to help their Haitian peers. But the need is still great, and your participation can make the difference!
It’s much more than a quick-fix, fundraising effort.
It’s an opportunity for young people to see how they are connected to the global community while learning about the real challenges of rebuilding after disaster. Through interactive video, field notes from on-the-ground teams, conversations with building professionals and live connections to Haitian students, challenge participants will learn first-hand how we can work together in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake to rebuild communities and lives.
