Description

The Handicap International project entitled “Improve living conditions for the most vulnerable populations affected by the earthquake “, which was implemented from September 2010 to December 2011, helped efforts to provide safe and dignified housing solutions for people outside Port-au-Prince by improving access to sanitation and by proposing a prefabricated housing module that met accessibility standards and used traditional construction techniques. The HI project also aimed to support the inhabitants of the most remote areas by strengthening existing schools through the building of community structures (classrooms). HI constructed 1,050 transitional shelters, including 29 shelters used to provide 16 classrooms in 7 schools.Five years after their construction, this evaluation has reviewed three main areas of the project: (A) current T-shelter and school use and conditions; (B) T-shelter modifications and durability; (C) the long-term impacts for beneficiaries and communities.
