Kleiwerks International in Haiti
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.
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
