HAITI PROGRESS REPORT - July 28, 2011

Bon bagay! The Rebuilding Center works through a flurry of activity at the peak of summer–including several generously-offered (and incredible) video shorts. Enjoy!

School construction
École La Dignité has completed foundations and slab and walls are now going up, while Elie Dubois undergoes demolition. Meanwhile, builders at Montrouis are absorbing techniques for safer building practices as foundations are being dug and sights are set for November 1 completion.

Communities plan communities
The Santo Community Development Plan, with Habitat for Humanity International, moves into its third phase of planning a fully-serviced development for 500 families outside Léogâne. Phase 3 includes finalizing civil works design, housing and sanitation systems, and exploring a  community/sports center and commercial corridor scheme. Nearby residents will be engaged in three additional community charrettes–see below.

Surveys back
The Economic Corridors team is analyzing over 400 business surveys...and the many business owners working to spring back. Review the methodology (pdf) and read some of the business' stories (pdf).

Civic arts initiative seeking artists
The Civic Arts for Haitian Schools RFQ is about to close its application phase–spread the word and let your local contacts know they could have their creation installed on the grounds of a rebuilt school in Haiti. Deadline is fast approaching - see the application for details.

Calling all CAD and BIM maestros
The Center is looking for assistance training new sessions of Haitian professionals in Autocad and Revit software. Sessions last two weeks and comprise of 12-person classes held at the Rebuilding Center, travel and lodging provided by Architecture for Humanity. Contact Sandhya Janardhan for details.

Welcome to the team!
