Whether from the point of view cultural, technical and contextual [...] There are several sizes to fit the needs of beneficiaries falmilles, and especially it is accessible to people with disabilities..." highlighted Panosetti Pascal, Head of the components construction and production.

"The design of the shelter values ​​the model of rural building, including by taking the traditional system of clissades (Kay Klisé), typically haitian. This promotes ownership by the beneficiary families," explained Marie Estella Joseph, assistant hygiene promotion.
