COMMUNITY CONTAINER LEARNING CENTER FOR HAITI PROJECT
Haiti's School Enrollment & Retention Rate
Raise Nation LLC will build a community learning center out of shipping containers in an area without an adequate means to education.
Why Shipping Containers?
Affordability - Shipping Containers 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.
Earthquake Resistant - 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.
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.
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 residential location for home building is not a problem.
