Unleashing Haiti's potential to build a stronger future by training a construction workforce of character and capability, while adding strength and safety to Haiti's infrastructure.
74% of Haitians are underemployed. 8.5 million live on less than $2.41 per day. Since the 2010 earthquake, 13.4 billion dollars have poured into Haiti with little sustainable impact.
Extollo is Changing that.
Our approach is based on the Chinese proverb, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish, you feed him for a life-time.” For the past five years, Extollo International has been developing and implementing a program that teaches Haitians how to care for themselves. Using the apprenticeship approach of “learning while earning and learning by doing,” Extollo combines classroom instruction with on-the-job training and supervision. Haiti has a need for skilled construction workers at the journeyman and contractor level. Extollo is meeting this need by teaching employable skills and character development to the people in Haiti that need it the most, those living in extreme poverty.
