Intervention area Orphanage of Sainte Marie de Toligbe, Ouidah, Benin
Period From 23/08/2019 to 14/09/2019
Budget around 4000 euros
OUIDAH/ONE is a summer building workshop in Benin organized by VERSO in order to renovate and upgrade an orphanage located in the south-west rural suburbs of Ouidah, close to the swamplands.
Currently the structure of the building is in good conditions, but are completely missing the furnitures and the equipment that could substantially improve the life conditions for the kids.
Beds, mosquito nets, chairs and tables to study and eat are missing as well open air areas covered by the sunlight and a paved path to move free in the courtyard during rain seasons.
Between August and September 2019 we'll be there together with an hybrid team of professionals composed by civil engineers, architects, cooperants and interior designers to provide solutions to expand the structure in collaboration with locals artisans.
