Typhoon-proof disaster relief housing manufacturin



After typhoon Haiyan there was no more food, drinkable water or houses. But slowly, after a few days, people were able to get organized to provide sufficient foods and care to the victims. But now what victims lack the most is a new house or place where they can recover and start their lives again. By helping them to set up local housing manufacturing to build innovative houses which will bring hope and joy back to the community to survive that calamity and the coming ones.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Mostly after every Typhoon, indigenous communities have to rebuild their houses over again because they were not resilient enough to strong winds and not compliant to minimum required affordable housing construction standards (mainly made of bamboos). They also lack knowledge and skills to build these kind of houses and no sufficient capital to buy it as well. Developing a dedicated housing social enterprise will create new jobs and alternative skill training among a huge housing market.

How will this project solve this problem?

In joint sustainable development approach with some private development organizations (expert in bamboo housing, micro-finance, volunteerism, environmental) this project intend to rebuild houses for disaster's victims until, hopefully not, the next typhoon and prevent massive destruction again. For reconstruction, we don't rely on donations but on ownership engagement and economical growth which will ensure sustainability and leverage in poverty reduction.We can provide training to the youth.

Potential Long Term Impact

This typhoon housing factory project would be able to develop economical activities and be duplicated in many other places in the Philippines. Being a social business, this model will ensure to commit the profit made back to communities in order to reinvest again for those who don't have enough money to build their house right away after a disaster. Complying to construction standards will facilitate to develop stable urbanism plan of the community and avoid wasting communities's assets.
