Original Project Scope:
Welcome Home Children's Centre's vision is to inspire hope for the future in orphaned Haitian Children. Currently, the 10 children in their care are in need of more permanent housing, as they are losing their lease on their present home. Welcome Home Children's Centre already had a vision for a larger centre, including dormitories for 75 children, a playground, a school, a medical centre, and a chapel. They have purchased and fenced the first 1.5 acres and are ready for a design team to help them masterplan the new Welcome Home Children's Centre, including a home for the current children that will eventually be turned into a guest house. Will you help them?
