The Relief 2.0 Enterprise disaster recovery model seeks to enable disaster survivors as entrepreneurs before they are turned into refugees by the conventional relief system.
Our mission is to empower local communities impacted by disaster to generate wealth and become self-sustainable, connecting them with local and global markets where disaster survivors sell goods and services so they can generate wealth and not depend on donations.
Survivors are resourceful and capable people able to fend for themselves and generate wealth if given the opportunity and proper support. The physical infrastructure may have been destroyed, but not so the social structure. The buildings might be gone, but the professionals and the skills of the people are intact, ready to be put to good use.
