* 405 shelters built * 125 latrines planned * 84 small grants disbursed * 3 communal kitchens built * 8 classrooms built * 561 families mobilized

As part of these efforts, the Emergency Response Team (CERT) has involved local engineering students for the shelter construction work and administration students for training and evaluation in the micro-business grant work. Eddie told me that the engineering students have been inspired by the project to create their own NGO in hopes of providing training on construction techniques.
