An app to bring together resources in urban planning, construction, habitation, restoration, and disaster response to effectively mobilize them and bring the community together.
Stage 3: Proof of Concept
The team has displayed work, concept and prototype to numerous members of the Haiti community who have faced natural disasters before (direct market research, primary research).

The majority of slums in developing countries which have faced natural disasters are but by themselves (along with family and friends), and it's the unsafe construction that puts family at risk due to lack of experience, expertise and resources. Therefore, there is a need for reconstruction of these structures to provide safe living environments.
This initiative reaches out locally to those more experienced of the right trade (e.g. Engineers, Architects, etc.) as well as gives easy access to key construction information and instructions via a mobile/web app, at the right place, at the right time. This further provides the people with the relevant knowledge and skills to build and support their habitats, and as a result provides safe construction for the developing world.
Disaster struck communities in developing countries and communities under risk of natural disasters like Earthquakes and Tsunamis.
Mission and Vision
To build more responsive and resilient communities related to rebuilding infrastructure. This project relates to SDGs 11,12,13.
Upon communicating with local communities in Haiti the project concept has received positive feedback indicating the need for the proposed solution.
Planned Goals and Milestones
Begin with a local small neighbourhood who has faced difficulty in reconstruction after a natural disaster - 10-50 people -> 50-100, etc.
