MobileFactory: Haiti’s first debris houses

MobileFactory – a dream becomes reality

It is time to demonstrate how to change the world!

Dangerous debris that destroys people’s lives and their surroundings will soon be transformed by The MobileFactory’s The Flying Dutchman into high-quality building materials for poor people to build their own safe, dignified homes.

After a disaster, the worldwide standard is moving from a home into a tent, while moving from a tent to a home is but an illusion, a dream. Together we can change this! On October 27 2016, we will show you how.

MobileFactory Haiti's first houses from debris

Last year, socially engaged citizens and businesses provided the financing of our first Mobile Factory named the Flying Dutchman. This containerized technology processes construction debris into Lego building blocks, which allows the construction of high-quality housing.

Social housing in Haiti

All aspects of the production and building process will be demonstrated and our pilot project in Haiti will be presented. In Haiti we will help 30 families build the Petit Paradis community: 23 homes, varying in size from 60 to 100 m. During construction the families receive a remuneration that can be used as a deposit for the house, their home. The houses will be managed by Haiti Housing Community S.A., the first social housing corporation in Haiti, founded in cooperation with our Haitian partners.

Self-reliance: the key to the future

Following the future occupants’ wishes, multiple families will be housed in a single home. Together, these families will be able to fully own their European-Dutch certified home within 10 years through a rent-to-own system. Self-reliance is the foundation for a dignified future – it can break the poverty cycle.
