We inspire young people worldwide to connect, learn and take collective action on critical global issues.
Students Rebuild is a collaborative program of the Bezos Family Foundation, born in January 2010 in response to the devastating Haiti earthquake. Since then, we’ve mobilized thousands of young people in 65 countries and all 50 United States and raised more than $2 million in matching funds for rebuilding schools in Haiti, youth facilities in Japan and livelihoods in Africa.

We believe every young person should have an opportunity to help others—but not everyone has the ability to fundraise. Our Challenges require young people to create a simple, symbolic object which the foundation matches with funding. This approach allows students of all ages, backgrounds and in countries around the world to take action and see change on international concerns.
