Sustainable AID Center in South Africa
NextAid has purchased a 16-acre piece of land that will be the site of the center. During the 2½ week design/building and training intensive in July they will be developing the design of the center and initiating construction of a house and general purpose space to be used by Youth With a Vision. They will be using local materials such as earth to minimize cost and make the building systems available to the local community. They will be working with a local builder who will be continuing work with the community after the intensive training session is completed. Joe will also be working with local colleagues in Cape Town to develop housing strategies for the crowded townships and informal settlements there.
Joe is seeking to raise $3,000 in the next five weeks to support his involvement in this project and would appreciate your help. Additional information on the project can be found at http://www.nextaid.org Donations are tax-deductible and can be made to Village Renaissance, Joe's "social profit" institute founded in 2004.
