1000 Jobs/Haiti endeavors to fight poverty in post-disaster Haiti by creating sustainable employment at fair wages. In addition to abiding by strict self-imposed standards around fair labor relations, each project must be environmentally sound and have the potential to become a self-sustaining enterprise.

The Rhode Island-based non-profit, described as a labor of love founded by a husband and wife team, provides entrepreneurial assistance and facilitates relationships between global markets and artisans and co-operatives within Haiti.

Unique, handmade and fairly traded items from the various projects are available through the non-profit's online store. Donations can also be made on the 1000 Jobs/Haiti website.
