Yesterday was Day of the Girl, and we thought it apt to feature solution-finding work done by a group of students from the girls' school Coeur Immacule de Marie (CIM) in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Their workshop last July (a similar one was held for their teachers) helped inform what their main priorities are for their new school design by Architecture for Humanity. Although CIM isn't a Students Rebuild project, we thought this news exciting to share–and show how student work is helping define a better, more sustainable future for this learning community.

We are very lucky at Headquarters to have an amazing team of volunteers. Today we would like to especially thank our model making team who has been working for the last 6 months on building physical models for our Football for Hope program.

The rumors are true. The Football for Hope program is working at full speed. One month after the official start of construction, the game is really on. Foundations are in and walls are going up. Door frames are just in at the South East center in Botswana. Congrats to all the teams.

Three more projects have just gone out to tender and construction is estimated December 1st. Stay tuned for more updates!
