(CCLC) COMMUNITY CONTAINER LEARNING CENTER PROJECT

OUR SOLUTION

THE PLAN

THE PROBLEM

1

Affordability

A Shipping Container can be purchased for as low as $2,000, providing a solid housing structure with walls, ceiling, and floor already in place at a reasonable cost to the impoverished in other nations.

2

Earthquake Resistant

Containers are built to be stacked eight high and tossed violently out on the high seas, Shipping Containers are incredibly durable with the capacity to withstand a sizable earthquake.

3

Safety

A major problem with remote and rural infrastructure is the risk of break-ins. Containers need a blowtorch or dynamite to break into and are too heavy to lift up and make-off with without anyone noticing. This contributes to making it a safe structure for use in remote areas.

4

Transportable

The containers are easily transported from place to place by truck, rail, or ship since they already are built to standard shipping requirements. They are all 8-foot wide and vary in lengths from 8 to 56 feet. They range from 8 ft. to 9 ft. 6 in. in height. Purchasing a module and having it shipped to a location  is not a problem.

WHY SHIPPING CONTAINERS?

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Today, numerous Haitian children lack access to quality education. Schools in Haiti face challenges maintaining student attendance which leads to poor student achievement, dropping out, and lower literacy levels. Uneducated parents are often unable to send more than one of their children to school at a time, and often choose boys over girls.  Cycles of poverty can occur generation after generation and thwart economic and social progress.  Haiti’s literacy is the lowest in the Western Hemisphere. The factors that impact completion of school education include (Sources:  CIA World Data Book, UNESCO, World Data Bank, Summits Education):

 

  • Seventy-eight percent (78%) of the population live on less than $2 USD a day: most families average $240 USD per year

  • Families have several students of school age to enroll

  • $100.00 USD per year. . .estimated annual tuition for a student

  • $35.00 USD per year. . .estimated cost of uniforms and materials

  • Limited books and materials in mother tongue of Kreyòl in K3 to grade 3 for initial learning

  • Limited access to school libraries

  • Eighty-five percent (85%) of teachers lack basic qualifications

  • Ninety percent (90%) of schools are run with little oversight
