Samasource + CrowdFlower in Haiti

Haiti XO Laptop We’re partnering with CrowdFlower to translate text messages for emergency relief efforts in Haiti, using local workers identified through our newest partner, 1,000 Jobs/Haiti.

This serves a dual purpose: disaster relief and economic development. Our hope is to ensure that some of the aid money going into the reconstruction effort supports Haitian workers directly, at a time when they could really use the extra  income. For the full story, check out a summary in the Huffington Post.
