In Haiti, Build Change spends most of the year developing retrofitting guidelines and training people, waiting for someone to start deploying cash subsidies for materials and labor for housing reconstruction.  The money in Money – Technology – People is so far missing; a stool with two legs cannot stand.  These short courses are good for building awareness but have limited long-term impact on skills development because they are not done on-the-job while rebuilding homes.
