Establishment of a training centre including production plant in a country destroyed by the earthquake

Thru the earthquake in Haiti in January 2010 died approximately 316 000 people, further 310 000 people were injured and estimated 1.85 million people were left homeless. According to the government, about 250 000 homes and 30 000 shops were destroyed. The subsequent report describes, how the club Pro Haiti e.V. conceived, planned and realized the project to support the economic development and reconstruction in Haiti.
After a statement of the situation in Haiti, particularly of the region West of Port au Prince, follows an introduction to the concept and a project description. The training centre offers a practice-oriented education teaching different crafting professions such as e.g. carpenters, masons, cabinet makers, etc. Here, people are not only trained in the practical part, but they also produce and build, so that a large part of training costs can be covered by the proceeds. The structural engineering of the training centre was especially designed: A construction that takes into account the local circumstances and therefore can be produced economically while ensuring a sufficient security in terms of the load case "earthquake".
