When you need a place full of willing, smart and hard working people that have resources and big ideas the only REAL place to go is …. Haiti Communitere.
We have brought some of our Haitian project partners over to HC to tour the different forward-thinking housing styles (Earth Ship, Adobe, Chicken Coop, Ubuntu). We have Moringa Trees germinating and growing in upcycled Tire Planters. We have designs to start melting refuse plastic and building edible canopy shade fort houses for school children. And we do this all with the help of Haiti Communitere.
One of the most intriguing projects taking place at HC is the Harvey Lacey speared idea of Ubuntu Blox Houses for Women. How can you simultaneously invigorate tried and true building methods to make them more accessible for locally available materials and for strength capacities specifically geared towards women? Ubuntu. How do you clean up plastic bags from the street while providing homes for women that can be BUILT by women for women all in the developing world? Ubuntu.
