$300 House: an update from Harvey Lacey

I just chatted with Harvey this weekend, and here’s a video he shared that shows his work at Haiti Communitere. The camera follows a group of women from Cite Soleil in Port au Prince as they build a house using styrofoam collected from the streets, canals, and ravines as a source material.


What’s great about Harvey is his passion for doing something. He always has something profoundly insightful to share.  He strongly advocates the empowerment of women as the gamechangers in the community, which, if you watch the video, is exactly what happens!
