A Sudanese American businessmen recently expressed interest in partnering with HS4S. We discussed the serious lack of craftsmanship knowledge in the Sudan and proposed some technical training in electrical, plumbing, and tile fitting skills. The workers would obtain technical training certificates upon completion of the buildings.
A first project could be a small clinic in eastern Sudan. The organization has the requisite contacts with influential businessmen in the Sudan to pick a site with the permission of the local authorities and begin the project with CalEarth trained architects. As HS4S has trained close to a hundred architecture and engineering students in the Sudan and maintained contact with the organizations involved, finding some of our past students to help and supervise a new project is part of the work plan.
