One down, one to go!

Hard work and long nights paid off!
We presented to a group tonight that consisted of Grace staff, village leaders and a representative from the Mayor’s office. After we presented the master plan, the Mayor’s representative stood up and commended us for putting together a residential site where Haitians would be comfortable. He said that quite a few Aid agencies have provided housing in Carrfour but none of them worked so hard to make it culturally appropriate. We essentially performed a 3-5 month long project in one week. Below is a photo of our work area.

We all spent way too much time in here! Electricity was shifty so some nights we were designing by headlamp.

I am so grateful to be part of such a cool project with amazing teammates. God truly blessed us with the strength to persevere on little sleep and the wisdom to produce an appropriate design for the community.

I am sad to be leaving my new friends tomorrow but excited to get started on my second project!

  1. “Electricity was shifty…” Stay in the nuclear power industry and perhaps you can be a Project Manager for building SMRs in Haiti.
