Our program management team is currently on the ground in Haiti. It includes two regional program managers. One with considerable post-disaster experience and the other a locally licensed architect. Rounding out the team is a Haitian-American architect and over time they will be joined by two to three design fellows.
The team is meeting up with our on the ground partners and setting up our long term offices. If you are interested in meeting with the team, please contact us at our headquarters in San Francisco and ask for Frederika Zipp.
Additionally we are working with Appropriate Infrastructure Development Group on increasing structural engineering assessments (and training) and mason training programs for reconstruction. In early March we should have french and creole versions of our Rebuilding 101 manual and earthquake resistant housing guides in the field.
