Today’s one week in Haiti and…..

It looks like today that the women will start processing material and making blocks.  Monday went as planned, the women were given an introduction to Ubuntu-blox from collection of materials to building a house with the finished blocks.  We were expecting 24 women and only 18 actually showed up.  We consider that a good turnout.

Monday while the women were here they were getting messages to hurry up and come home because of unrest in the community.  Cite Soleil has about 300,000 residents.  Our women are from different communities in that community.  When there is unrest everyone wants to be close to home.  The day ended early and yesterday was canceled because of the unrest.

The women are building a block with one of the two machines we made last summer while here.
