Our project focuses on empowering the Nepalese community and on using an incremental approach to rebuilding post-disaster. By transforming the temporary housing into permanent housing we:

-  reduce issues of displacement, and strengthen communities


-  increase a sense of ownership


-  reduce cost that would normally be spread over several stages of housing


- provide a flexible framework in which varied family situations, personal preference and future adaptability is considered. 


Other main considerations include:

- earthquake resistant construction


- community/self build project, which reinforces the community and also teaches skills to members of the community.


- low cost, sustainable, simple, fast building techniques and materials


- an extrapolation of the Kathmandu original city grid (the dissolution of which has contributed to Kathmandu's susceptibility to earthquakes and other infrastructure issues)


- allocating resources to sanitation facilities due to sanitation and health issues in Nepal and particularly Kathmandu

Daniel Kural: i think it a fantastic idea to empower the people and allow them the opportunity to start re building their own communities not just physically but also mental though neighbors and families who are located in the same "community blocks"
