1000 Jobs/Haiti is Helping On the Ground
Plateau Central (Haiti) - As part of its contribution to the reconstruction of the country, 1000 Jobs/Haiti hosted Leila Chirayath Janah (Samasource Founder and CEO) in Mirebalais on Sunday February 14, 2010, where she gave a training on "Mission 4636" initiative. Her mission in Haiti was to establish a digital work center, to create jobs for some of the thousands of people that have fled the capital to find work, through a partnership between these two organizations. "Mission 4636" (http://www.samasource.org/haiti/) is a collaboration among several organizations to translate emergency text messages into English to assist aid workers in rescue operations.
Please read Leila's blog at: http://www.socialedge.org/blogs/samasourcing/give-work-europe-haiti-and-beyond/weblogentry_view, and check out some pictures from her trip at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/39937668@N06/.
January 19, 2010 - 1000 Jobs/Haiti president, Buck Close, was in Haiti when the earthquake hit last week. He returned today to lend his assistance to our friends, our employees and their families, with much-needed food supplies, drinking water and medicines. We will also provide medical checkups, and make sure our employees get paid while they take time to mourn the loss of loved ones.
Thank you for your continued support of the work of 1000 Jobs/Haiti. We will keep you posted about our contribution to the rebuilding of Haiti. Please visit our partner's website at http://www.samasource.org/contribute/ to make a donation toward one of our upcoming projects.
