#Giving Tuesday is here!
Help us by sponsoring an entrepreneur or a job
This has been one of the best years of Nehemiah Project. We celebrated our 19th year of marketplace ministry with over 20K entrepreneurs trained in over 38 countries globally, along with 2K businesses coached, and over $2MM of direct investments in businesses, thanks to people like you.
Seven years ago, due to the generous contribution of a major donor, we were able to launch the Biblical Entrepreneurship program in the nation of Haiti. Though we have been able to make some impact, there is still much to be done. As you may be aware, since the 2010 earthquake in Haiti and after over $13 billion of investment, very little has changed in Haiti because of a lack of emphasis on ethics, entrepreneurship, and job creation.
Though the Biblical Entrepreneurship Haiti team has been able to train several hundred entrepreneurs and even produce an international business plan competition winner, they desperately need our help to stabilize their program and make it a permanent viable institution in Haiti. According to Haitian born Daniel Jean Louis, the author From Aid to Trade, “Foreign Aid in itself and in the present format does not benefit the poor and needy countries. After corruption and political instability, foreign aid is one of the problems of recipient countries. To help balance the equations, or bridge the gap, donor countries need to make sure that while they want to help recipient countries, they must not sideline local businesses and entrepreneurs. Donor countries must help in building the foundations for these local entrepreneurs to grow. They must make sure that the already weak local businesses are not choked out by the aid.”
Please help us support local businesses in Haiti while creating a culture of entrepreneurship. Our goal in 2019 is to train 960 entrepreneurs and to establish 64 businesses that are able to generate 320 jobs.
