  • nathanielpersky nathanielpersky Mitchell,

    This project was posted a couple years ago, have you been continuing to develop the idea?
    I launched a project last year to help develop the Dadaab camps and cultivate job creation. After viewing your slide show I would like to speak with you in more detail. If your interested I see a lot of potential between us for discussion and idea development on the subject.

    My website is www.flashconstruct.com and here is a short blip on my project:
    FC was created for one simple reason, to create potential for individuals that have no visible future. Following a realists approach to the situations, FC focuses on the many variables in existence, 'thinking outside the box', FC builds sustainable solutions to current problems. In reality there are no 'what ifs', 'maybes' or 'if onlys'. Rather there are persons living unmanageable lives in degraded conditions with no foreseeable solution. FC creates that solution.

    The classical refugee camp model is very successful, but if there is not a consistent flow of refugees into and out of the camp, then the model has faltered. Refugee camps are temporary models designed to supply the bare minimum in habitat resources to persons in need of a safe environment. When this bare minimum is not met, FC steps in. Through innovative new operating procedures, solutions can be found to rebuild the lives of refugees and displaced persons. FC builds financing for its humanitarian wing through for profit business. There is a finite amount of aid monies in the world which FC does not view as a reliable operating constant.

    Through private investment FC creates a model where private business is the backbone of a humanitarian cause. With this model all parties involved can gain from the end product, enticing more business to participate in this innovative new social enterprise.

  • msipus Mitchell Sipus, Community Planner at Cairo, Egypt Hey, there, I checked out your site, and read about the work you are doing. Looks great! To address your thought, the use of shipping containers is already a standard procedure by agencies such as MSF for some of their missions. It really just depends on the site, the logistics, and the availability of resources. If you are looking at IT centers, you might want to check out some of the work that the Norwegian Refugee Council has done within its youth programming. Also there is a non-profit, http://www.inveneo.org/, that works to provide ICT service within areas of limited access. Cheers!

  • richardcclose Chrysalis Campaign at Chrysalis Campaign I am launching a Global Learning Framework and we are in discussions on how to build Community Technology Centers in rural Africa. I have thought about the camps and these center could be built inside of shipping containers. You can see more and reach me at http://globallearningframework.ning.com 4 years ago
