Dear Wesley Campbell,
Congratulations on your project. Many countries are working on your targeted community. Youth is our future and we must all work towards helping them make the most out of it.
When reading about your idea, we couldn´t help researching about the mentioned Hurricanes. We understand that one of your goals is to be prepared for the worst case scenario if a natural disaster were to happen. But, it seems that “new” natural disasters tend to be stronger than the ones holding a not so honorable record. So, we are intrigued to know how your program is developing tools to be ready for “Unknown strength natural disasters”.
Looking forward to hearing your comments on this. We wish you the best of luck.


Irene commented on Kalimantan Haze Shelter Program

Dear Wally Tham,

Your proposal is very interesting, although for those of us who were not familiarized with the problem, it is not simple to understand.

Many questions come to mind, that maybe you could answer. For instance, what kind of filters do you use to retain/capture CO2? What would happen once the filter is saturated, do you need to buy a new ventilator or just a replacement would do? Is this shelter equipped with some kind of indicator that would let users know everything is working as it should?

We were also wondering if you have developed a plan for those shelters that stop working while being used.

We hope you don´t mind us asking, but we are very intrigued and would love to learn more about your problem.

Looking forward to hear back from you.

Congratulations Grand Bahama Beekepers Cooperative, your project accomplishes two difficult tasks. Empowering the community by teaching them a job and helping the environment by educating youth on the importance of bees and the impact they have in the ecosystem.

We were wondering… Have you developed an actual training program for different age groups?
Uniting people towards one goal is not an easy mission to achieve and yet, you made it possible. Having created a cooperative with such a multidisciplinary team, helps you guarantee the longevity of your project.

We hope to hear from you and wish you the best of luck developing your project further.
