BENEFITING: KLEIWERKS INTERNATIONAL
The goal of the workshop is to provide training in earthquake resistant and sustainable building methods in Port-au-Prince. Participants would use the training to help others build homes for themselves. In that sense, the workshop would not be a one-time event, but a means of perpetuating shelter and empowerment many times over.
The total cost of a three day workshop for 12 students led by one instructor would be $3,000 (approximately $250.00 per student). A generous donor in our parish has contributed a portion toward that amount. We are working to raise funds for the remaining balance and hope to implement the workshop in early 2011.
