Challenge

Seen above, the international community is facing the issue of providing proper housing for 14,664,000 refugees and internally displaced persons. The materials used for shelters are often of poor quality and poor sanitation leads to disease. One example is the current situation in Haiti where their shelters have been destroyed by the hurricanes that have hit the island nation following the earthquake in January 2010. This project will affect millions of refugees in various areas of the world.

Solution

The pilot project provides sustainable and durable housing for refugees that can be broken down, moved to a different location, and rebuilt. The materials are high quality and participants are taught how to build and break down the shelters.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide rapid response housing for 100 refugees that can be multiplied to include larger numbers of people. We will be able to react much more efficiently to disasters, man-made or natural, and provide temporary, proper housing.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Excel file (projdoc.xls).
