There is a new StarTeam in Haiti. Four men from Ellinwood, Kansas will be installing and teaching how to install “hurricane ties” on the new roof structure on the new building in Bois Negresse.
This is a follow up team to the Swedish E-Team that was just there painting the new building.
By seeing that the foreigners place such an importance on this structural tie down Star of Hope project manager Tony has observed that local builders often adapt to these technologies. The acquired skills they then use to improve homes and other buildings in the area.
When I stayed in Haiti for longer period of times in 2010 and 2011 I meet many StarTeam members and it was great times. They brought happiness, joy and they taught the kids and the school staff many different things.
One team came down to teach local workers to produce all the school furniture that Star of Hope now uses in the newly built school.
I’m looking forward to the reports from this week’s StarTeam.
