Extollo started just after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. We are committed to the economic development of Haiti through training in the construction fields. We build up a local workforce and train them to rebuild their country.
Eliminate extreme poverty in Haiti through education, employment, economic and character development. Using the apprenticeship approach of “Learning while earning and learning by doing” equipping Haitians with employable skills to rebuild their own country.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the foundation in all we do. We believe that we proclaim the love of Christ through our actions and deeds – and that we are called to love and care for all people. We believe we serve God by serving people – including individuals, communities, and countries – both spiritually and physically. We believe we can serve God and His people through education, facilitating and training.
We believe orphans, widows and children are especially important to God and we strive to use our gifts and talents to help them. Extollo International welcomes all people to partner with us to make a difference in the world. We are not affiliated with, or restricted to, a particular religious group, nor do we discriminate on any basis when building our structures. We are driven by our love of God and helping his people.
Extollo International - What We Do
We teach and train people to rebuild their own communities. By participating in the process of “raising up” buildings, we believe dignity and self-respect can be instilled and restored. (Extollo means “raise up” in Latin). We want to help communities build permanent homes, churches and schools using local labor, readily available local materials teaching everyone to built to International earthquake and hurricane building standards. Using our design/build techniques and vast experience in construction, development and training, we train students from all over the country to build structures that are cost-effective, high-quality and permanent, expandable in size to fit different needs & earthquake and hurricane resistant where needed.
