Along the way, the decision was made to purchase instead of lease the large 8' x 8' x 40' shipping containers so that they could be repurposed in Haiti. Started in February of last year with a visit by 17 US volunteers working a construction and clothing distribution, by July 2011 the first Container YMCA was opened in LaBoule Haiti. It utilized two containers and a unique roof design and includes classrooms, a library, offices, multipurpose room and a small bathroom and food preparation area. It is located on a beautiful site which includes a soccer field.
