Haiti ARISE North Campus

Haiti ARISE has a vision “to raise up godly leaders in Haiti through education to strengthen their families, neighbors, and country, bringing relief of poverty and stimulating the economy, and to preach the Gospel so that lives will be saved and hope for a strong future will be given to Haiti.” They have been carrying out this vision through a theological and trade school, where practical life skills are taught alongside Biblical leadership and theological training to young men and women who are hungry to learn. The January 2010 earthquake, however, destroyed 90% of Grand-Goâve, including Haiti ARISE’s technical school.

An EMI Canada team visited Haiti Arise in June of 2011 to master plan the new and as yet undeveloped Haiti Arise South Campus. During that visit the EMI Canada expressed to Haiti Arise not only the need to reconstruct the Technical School but also the need to re-master plan the property for greater effective and efficient use of the land along with other strategically designed buildings. The result was a second eMi Canada team arriving in September of 2011 on the Haiti Arise North Campus to carry out the re-master planning and design of new facilities and associated infrastructure (water, sanitation and electrical services). EMI provided this report of the proposed design for the North Campus, the design opportunities and constraints for developing an overall Site Master Plan with detailed designs for technical school buildings, dormitories, and an administration building.
