The following projects are proposed.

We believe they are achievable and would deliver much needed assistance to families affected by a disaster. Furthermore, the follow up assessment would be an invaluable resource for all involved with future deployments.

The costing figures are only provisional estimates and will be updated as we move forward.

All of the proposals are open to discussion on Disaster Relief Innovation - ReciproBoo  or if you prefer,
leave a comment or contact us direct.

ReciproBoo project


To deliver 200 ReciproBoo kits to families affected by a disaster.


1. Order and assemble 200 ReciproBoo kits.
2. Store in country of manufacture until required.
3. Transport to country affected by disaster.
4. Oversee and complete customs and importation documentation (and duty if applicable)
5. Establish local partners and other NGOs to determine needs and infrastructure (latrines , water provision etc) required.
6. Transport within country
7. Demonstrate and supervise erection of shelters.
8. A follow up assessment and evaluation.


a). Is there a need?

  Clearly a desperate shortage of shelter in the early days and weeks following a disaster.
  This type of shelter is a great improvement for disaster victims who may currently receive just a tarpaulin.

b). Can it fail financially ?

  No, because the main parameters 1, 2 and 3 will be costed in detail beforehand.
  Donated funds will be accounted for with complete transparency.
  Parameters 4 and 6 will be covered by a reserve fund. Any remaining funds
  will be accounted for and used to purchase further kits.
  The remaining parameters 5,7 and 8 will be self funded by us.

c) Can it fail as a shelter project?

  No, because all the materials being supplied are required in a disaster situation and can be made
  use of by families made homeless. In the unlikely event the recipients not building the intended
  reciprocal frame shelter there is a simple "A" frame alternative which can be built.

ReciproMal Project


To assess the effectiveness of using mosquito nets with or without a Recipromal frame in the Gulu region of Northern Uganda. This region has one of the highest incidences of malaria in Africa.


1. Order and assemble 100 ReciproMal kits and 200 mosquito nets.
2. Transport to Gulu Uganda ( Above kits of 10 poles in 19mm steel and nets = 527Kg)
3. Demonstrate the use of 100 ReciproMal + mosquito nets to families in a village.
  Demonstrate 100 mosquito nets to a second village.
4. A follow up assessment after 6 months


a). Is there a need? Yes particularly in the most vulnerable group of pregnant women and young children where poor immunity results in a high mortality rate.

b). Can it fail financially ?

  No because costs are fixed for purchase and there are no storage costs.
  Transportation costs are the main variable although shipping by sea will be a lot cheaper.

c). Can it fail to deliver benefits?
  No. Delivering the mosquito nets alone to this region will ensure full benefits.
