“Who learns skills for free? Interns who assist aid organizations.
Learn and serve in the US only or here and overseas as well. Build Simple Inc. offers free training in construction and design of geo-textile buildings like earthbag and straw wattle or techniques like Ubuntu-blox that use agricultural waste or plastic trash.
Two weeks of training near Albuquerque, NM is being scheduled for early July, with repeat dates in September. Help BSI to advance building knowledge about alternative techniques while you learn. Builders, photographers, building designers, and service team leaders can all contribute needed skills. Engineers and engineering students are especially needed to test structures- ask about donating a day or getting involved in an ongoing study.
After training, go to your aid project, or connect with one of BSI’s partners. Interns are needed to spend a few weeks to a few months working with aid organizations in Haiti, Thailand, or other parts of the world. Tell simple_earth what aid groups you’re working with and when, to see how we can help you.”
