Kleiwerks has been on the ground in Haiti since February 2010.  Our primary goal is to improve long-term security on behalf of the Haitian people by offering training and technical support to individuals, organizations and communities that are interested in sustainable technologies.  We are currently partnering with Haitian leaders, NGO’s, and the international community to build capacity around shelter, water and food systems that are replicable, sustainable, and affordable.

Goals
1) Empowerment and stabilization for Haitian communities;
2) Re-direct relief efforts toward replicable, sustainable, whole-systems approaches;
3) Replicate best practices based on long-term sustainability

From co-lab remix:
Since the January earthquake rocked the island nation of Haiti, thousands of groups have responded to give immediate aide. We arrived just three months ago with a different mission– a mission focused on the longterm sustainable redevelopment of a new resilient Haiti.
Help Haitians rebuild safe homes in a way that lasts, that is better for the planet and that they can afford to maintain. Together we can allocate as much as $11 billion in aid towards sustainable reconstruction that uses building technologies which are affordable and readily available to the Haitian people. The result: a truly resilient Haiti.
