Working together with Bikalpa, a local NGO, the workshop and demonstration of the bamboo ReciproBoo shelter will be based at Naya pati, Sundarijal near Kathmandu, Nepal from 1st to 3rd May 2013.
This is an open and not for profit project to promote the only existing frame kit that is capable of supporting standard relief tarpaulins. With an emphasis on self-help using basic skills and local materials, the aim is to empower local groups and organisations to be able to mobilise large numbers of this shelter when needed.
Training for architects, architectural assistants and students planning to volunteer in the humanitarian and development sector.
This course is designed for architects, Part II architectural assistants and students wishing to offer their services voluntarily, or paid, to architecture charities or charities involved in the built environment. It will provide legal and ethical guidance and introduce frameworks enabling practitioners to make informed choices and decisions about the charities they plan to work for.
The owners of this company in Superior contacted AFH to try to find a place to donate some of the wood they hope to salvage from what was once the largest grain elevator in the country (world ?). But they need to stay in business long enough to salvage more of it, and keep it from possible demolition.
This is mostly a request for brainstorming ideas-
The Arnica Drying Cooperative was Architecture for Humanity UK's first international project, and was supported by the WWF and carried out in partnership with Oxford University Business School. The project was undertaken as both a business study and an architectural initiative, and was carried out in collaboration with a Romanian community farming cooperative. The business was set up as a hybrid NGO/for-profit company, with profits feeding back into the system as subsidies for local farmers to encourage sustainable growth practice.

The fundraiser event will be taking place this weekend Saturday, December 3rd from 10am to 3pm. They have been kind enough to give us a booth (booth 31) and we would like to find some volunteers, who would be able to represent the organization, collect donations and simply educate the public about our mission.
In the past Scott has suggested that people familiarize themselves with the AFH mission and be prepared to explain it to anyone they talk to. We do not have any physical material so if you have an ipad or computer or else just being there in person
We are in the process of putting together a site plan for the El Dorado Dog Park but are in need of some assistance in regards to landscaping specifics. We don't need to much of anyone's time, maybe just a few hours once we finalize a design. IF you are interested please respond to this post.
We would require this time sometime after Thanksgiving and before our December 1, 2012 deadline.
