Global Impact w/Julie Colombino
Episode 22 features Julie Colombino. She is the Founder and CEO of REBUILD globally and the CEO of Deux Mains. She is a former foreign aid worker who felt called to respond to Haiti after the earthquake devastated the country in 2010. After months of working in the disaster zone she recognized that simply giving people things could only help so much, she needed to work with the community to rebuild their lives and livelihoods. Julie developed a team of like-minded visionaries that created a social entrepreneurial ecosystem that works to end poverty. By empowering people to make and sell products that the global community purchases because they are valued products, not out of sympathy but dignity restored. Deux Mains is owned and operated by the survivors. Julie is going to share how she’s courageously working to end generational poverty through education and job training in Haiti.
