Rebuilding Haiti Together Sustainably.


Ideas, questions, suggestions? Please email us:


We are currently looking for volunteers with experience or interest in building construction, engineering, business development and social entrepreneurism. Of course, we’re extremely open to new ideas and we embrace the chance to discuss fresh approaches to the housing and water issues of Haiti. Above all, we’re looking forĀ self starters – highly motivated people who are willing to get their hands dirty.

If you would like to travel with Barrels of Hope to Haiti on one of our building/training trips you must be at least 18 years old, willing to perform manual labor and heavy lifting and pay for your travel expenses.

If you would like to join our team please send us an email us at

Suggest a build site

We are actively searching for potential build sites for our Earth-bag houses! If you are interested, or know of an organization working in Haiti that is looking for a housing solution like ours, please email us.

To qualify, a build site must be clear of rubble and the owner must be able to present appropriate legal documents verifying ownership of the land. We will also require access to soil to fill the earth-bags for building.

Along with supplies, we will send a Team Leader to manage the build and train others in our building technique, ensuring a strong and safe house.
