How it Works

Unlocking Communities is a Social Enterprise where Community Partners, Community Businesses, and Community Entrepreneurs work together. This community-based model results in true empowerment for Haitians to take back their health, their future, and their country.

Why Haiti?

Haiti needs social enterprises. Haiti has many challenges that range from vulnerability to natural disaster to water sanitation issues. Our founder, Josh Goralski, has spent extensive time in Haiti and has come to understand that what Haitians want is simple: an improved quality of life and to address fundamental needs that are merely at a level of basic human rights. And more specifically, many people in Haiti want to find ways to help themselves.

Our Impact

Unlocking Communities recognizes the talent and capabilities of the people in Haiti and sees the opportunity to unlock these and other entrepreneurial strengths within the community for the purpose of putting economic power in the hands of the Haitians, thus elevating Haiti.
