The problem: Today there is still no frame available for supporting the thousands of tarpaulins that are delivered by aid agencies when disaster strikes. The ReciproBoo Shelter Kit (RSK) provides a solution to this problem. The RSK is a simple but exceptionally strong reciprocal frame shelter that uses local resources and requires only basic skills to assemble. Families can now build a dignified shelter with their tarpaulin and adapt it to their personal needs.

It is cooler than a tent and can be rapidly erected and taken down to be easily carried by families on the move. [Read more about these benefits]
