Access to technology for building safely

Good concrete block workWe congratulate Dr. Hausler for her award, and for her ongoing efforts to improve reconstruction methodology in the least developed nations of the world.

We have had the opportunity to meet and share construction technology ideas with Tim Hart, one of the engineers who assists Build Change. We feel that our efforts to improve construction methods a very closely aligned with those of Dr. Hausler and Mr. Hart.

It is our belief that local materials and local skills should be enhanced through training and improving access to better technology. By improving training and technology the poorest people of the world will have the opportunity to live in safer structures.

The Lemelson Foundation and MIT have chosen a wise investment… Keep up the great work, Build Change!
