EachONE BuildONE
Home Rebuilding Project

Purpose

The devastation of the January 12, 2010 earthquake destroyed more than half a million homes throughout Haiti, rendering 1.5 million homeless & forcing families to live in makeshift shelters and tents. We have implemented as a part of our Disaster Response Plan the EachONE BuildONE Home Rebuilding Project to aid local families return to normal living conditions.

Construction

The EachONE BuildONE homes are reinforced post and beam and cement block structures with cement roofs. Each home has 3 rooms plus a porch. The homes are being built throughout the community where families own land.

This project is made possible by Disaster Relief funds and the partnership and support of Kootenay Christian Fellowship, Surrey Alliance and The Link Christian Fellowship.

Estimated Cost per Home: $6,000 US

 

Current operations

The EachONE BuildONE program launched Dec 1, 2010. Each family selected to receive a home must have had their home destroyed in the earthquake, own their own land and help in the construction of their home, plus one other home. The first 3 families selected all helped one another build their homes and have taken great pride in their new ownership. The first 10 homes were funded by disaster relief funds. Each home was estimated to cost roughly $5,000 US, but as in working out a new program, there are always initial capital costs, which caused the first 3 homes to cost around $8,000 US. After working through the process, we have been able to work the cost out to $6,000 per home, at a rate of 15 working days.

As of January 2014, we have completed construction of 60 homes. Many churches and individuals have helped sponsor this program to see it continue.
