Sustainable Solutions to Extreme Poverty

Not a Hand Out, but a Way Out.

There is a time for relief. But, what happens next?

An earthquake devastates an impoverished nation and millions of dollars of aid pour in as the world responds to crisis. A hungry orphan is given a free meal by a generous organization. But what happens when these donations are exhausted? What happens when that child wakes up hungry again the next day? Could there be a way to eradicate world poverty and hunger?  KORE Foundation believes there is.

Not a hand out, but a way out.

We create sustainable solutions to extreme poverty in Haiti, focusing on the steps “beyond relief” for the greatest impact.  With a holistic approach, we are addressing the spiritual, physical and economic needs of the extreme poor.


Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere.  The problems of poverty and food scarcity are well documented.  Identifying and implementing sustainable solutions to these problems is crucial.  Our purpose is to provide opportunities for Haitian people to overcome poverty and become self-sustaining. 

While there is a time for relief – an immediate response to emergency situations, such as a family on the brink of starvation – sustainable development focuses on providing resources that are not depleted over time. KORE implements programs that empower people rather than create dependency, equipping communities to change their own futures.   We focus on addressing immediate needs AND empowering future generations with the ultimate goal of breaking the cycle of extreme poverty.

Unlike relief dollars that are given, spent and must be replenished, dollars invested in economic development, or “business as ministry”, never stop working.

#GivingTuesday is a national day of giving to help start the Christmas season.  Leading up to December 3rd, KORE's #GivingTuesday campaign will provide a platform for you to help us cultivate sustainability in impoverished Haitian communities and help make this season the biggest giving season yet! 

We invite you to be part of this celebration and show how the world can do much more with our wallets than just consume. We have a big goal!  We want to add 1,000 kids to our protein intervention feeding program.  For $6.25 a month, a child will receive animal protein in addition to their typical beans and rice diet.  $75 will feed  a child for an entire year!  Consider letting this be your Christmas gift to your friends and families!  We will send them a Christmas card with a photo of a child participating in our 6.25 Campaign.  Click Give Online for more info.
