4 types of ConstruKit
What problem does the idea help to solve and how does your solution work? (2,000 characters maximum)
Imagine a new Lego-like modular construction method, easily 3D printed, very portable, can use on-site resources such as tree branches and bamboo as part of the construction, can be combined with modern turbine or engine or solar panels, can be disassembled and reassembled quickly, can convert houses into trucks at a moment's notice, can be designed into anything, flexible, extensible, strong, lightweight, cheap and reusable. This is what ConstruKit aims to be.
People on the move will have needs that are always changing. They need shelter, power, ability to move people and things around, furniture, clean water etc. ConstruKit has ways to provide for each and every need of these people.

Geography of focus (500 characters)
We focus on global issues of the poor, the disaster ravaged, the war torn, the 3Rd world and the displaced people.
Building Bridges: What bridge does your idea build between people on the move and neighbors towards a shared future of stability and promise? (500 characters)
The bridge we are building is the ability of people on the move to fend for themselves by being able to build anything they need and share this ability to neighbors for peaceful co-existence and cooperation as well as getting food, supplies, fuel and friendship.
What human need is your idea solving for? (1,000 characters)
Human need using ConstruKit is the need to build anything while being constantly on the move. The need of people on the move is always changing. ConstruKit is flexible, strong, cheap and reusable is perfect to meet the human need of these people. The joy of being able to build what is needed, when it's needed. The hope of people by the ability to build own power generation system and clean water via pumps using ConstruKit can be life saving. The dignity of displaced people by having skills of building anything they need and can sell to neighbors they meet is the best gift we cam give them.
What will be different within the community of focus as a result of implementing your idea? (1,000 characters)
Actionable impact of ConstruKit is the ability to build anything displaced people need, when and where they need it, completely reusable, can be disassembled and reassembled quickly into anything, cultivate design and creativity for the people on the move and create positive change for these people.
What is the inspiration behind your idea? (1,000 characters)
Inspiration is seeing people use ConstruKit extensively for everything they do and improve their livelihood using their own ideas, design ability, creativity and construction skills.
Describe the dynamics of the community in which the idea is to be implemented. (1,000 characters)
The dynamics of the community using ConstruKit is the ability of people on the move to build anything the community needs, as ad when it is needed and help the community fend for themselves economically.
