Schools, medical clinics, and houses are being constructed in the Dominican Republic out of reusable plastic bottles. We’ll work with local people, including Haitian migrant communities, to create more of these structures, which help rid the area of waste and teach environmental awareness. Most importantly, they provide a much-needed resource, with many of these rural communities lacking basic infrastructure. To achieve our purpose, lay cement foundations, stack bottles and secure around the walls, or construct a roof – you pick up where the last group left off, so your tasks differ depending on time of travel.
