Buy Local. Build Haiti.
Peace Dividend Trust is a global non-profit organization dedicated to making peace and humanitarian operations more efficient, effective, and equitable. Since August 2009, we have operated the Peace Dividend Marketplace Haiti (PDM-H) project to streamline the international community’s local procurement activities so that money is spent in Haiti, not just on Haiti. This strengthens the Haitian private sector by creating jobs, improving long-term economic growth and by facilitating and increasing access to locally available goods and services.

Our services are FREE!
Online Business Directory: We maintain an up-to-date directory containing detailed information for over 2,500 Haitian-owned companies across 27 sectors to help connect international and national buyers with verified local businesses. Visit haiti.buildingmarkets.org for more details. Tender Distribution: Tender Notices are instantly published and distributed to companies listed on our business directory via e-mail and SMS. We also encourage companies to submit bids on tenders that match their product lines. We distribute about 15,000 copies of such tenders on a monthly basis. Business Matchmaking: We provide buyers looking to fill specific requests with a shortlist of Haitian companies that they can then directly contact. Local procurement has never been easier! Training: We provide regular sessions for Haitian companies on international procurement practices, including training on completing forms and meeting the specific requirements of large international buyers.

PDT advocates a Haiti First Policy
What is Haiti First? Research on the local economic impact of international aid missions shows that only a small portion of the aid money pledged and spent in the aftermath of a disaster will actually be channeled through the host government and local economy. A Haiti First policy encourages aid agencies to buy goods and services from Haitian suppliers whenever possible. This can help turn a tragedy into an opportunity by driving millions, if not billions of new investment into the Haitian economy: simultaneously building capacity and ownership over the development and reconstruction process.
