Hi Jean, that is a really interesting idea. We are planning on running ToT (Train the trainer) sessions for refugees to learn the technique. We could then look at whether there would be any interest from host communities near the camp in learning the technique. This could lead to skills sharing and open dialogue/better integration between the two communities.

Hi Kathleen, thanks for your feedback. Once the initial pilot is complete, the community will take it over completely, with support from local NGOS - that would be a great opportunity to partner with organisations focused on areas like health and kids. Already the existing community centre is used by our Community mobilization team to host Women's groups and children's groups and the feedback has been very positive. Also, if we end up building public spaces with SuperAdobe, the community has asked for health centres and schools, so another chance to partner there. Thanks again and all the best.

Thanks so much for your feedback! Yes the environmental aspect is really important to consider with projects like these, hopefully this pilot will encourage others to try the technique in different countries.
