Our Philosophy

Poverty and vulnerability in a developing nation are best addressed through sustainable job creation.

Our Story

Ted & Rebecca Barlow moved to Haiti in response to the earthquake of 2010. Initially it was to stabilize families and vulnerable children through relief efforts in order to prevent abandonment to orphanages.

In 2014, they saw the need for job creation as a longer term solution. Ted has a background in corporate IT, Rebecca's brother is a computer programmer and so the three came together and the early incubation of this business began.

In fall 2016 the time was right to actually embark on this two faceted project. As we began to move forward, Nat Segaren also joined our executive team as CFO and so, NouKod was born!
