Why this shelter is needed

Frames are not supplied to support the hundreds of thousands of tarpaulins provided to displaced families every year.

The result is poorly constructed unsafe shelters

The ReciproBoo Shelter Kit (RSK) is the only shelter to use a reciprocal frame roof to provide a solution to this problem.

The shelter kit is exceptionally efficient.
It uses 33% less bamboo than any equivalent shelter thereby saving 33% on transporation costs.

How we provide RSKs

1. By giving free instructor level training to aid organisations / groups in how to use the RSK.

2. Assisting these instructors to set up RSK preparedness programs in communities at risk.

3. Training relief staff in how the RSK can be used for a large scale disaster response.
