In addition to our 2019 work this year, HSP sent five people to Build Change Training here in Port-au-Prince. We received both hands-on and classroom training in confined masonry construction for small buildings. It was 30 hours of training and all passed the final exam. HSP specializes in confined masonry construction because this is the most common form of construction in Haiti. Using simple techniques with the right materials and the correct amount of materials results in the construction of earthquake and hurricane resistant buildings.
