Rebuilding Schools for a New Generation of Haitians
Founded in response to the devastating earthquake in Haiti on January 12, 2010, our first initiative—Students Rebuild: Haiti—called on students around the globe to raise money to rebuild schools in Haiti. It combined a $500,000 matching 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. The challenge: create a team to raise money, which will be matched dollar for dollar by the Bezos Family Foundation.
125 Teams: 3,400 Students from 9 countries helped to summon over $680,000 to support 5 schools, build 50 classrooms & benefit 2,000 students.
