||Haiti will need to be completely
rebuilt from the ground up, according to a journalist, as "even
in good times, Haiti is an economic wreck, balancing precariously
on the razor's edge of calamity."
United Caribbean Trust (UCT) has been working in
Haiti over the last four years Jenny Tryhane the Founder was in
Haiti during the earthquake and remained there for three months
to give assistance and distribute items donated by the Barbadian
public and is perfectly positioned to assist with the rebuilding
UCT has identified land in the St Marc area for
a Building Pilot Project.

homes have been distroyed in the earthquake and now the most
recent hurricane Matthew..

the structure withstands, with no damages, strains greater
than those calculated for a First Class Earthquake, that
is the maximum provided for by the Italian Earthquake regulation.

UCT will be researching the possibility of solar
lighting for these homes identifying companies that are already
bringing relief to Haiti such as Sol Inc.

and LED outdoor lighting solutions for commercial and institutional
clients in 61 countries on six continents. As the creator of the

UCT partnering with organization like the Solar
Electric Light Fund (SELF)
Energy is a Human Right
The mission of the Solar Electric Light Fund
(SELF) is to provide solar power and wireless communications
to a quarter of the world’s population living in energy
SELF believes that energy is a human right. To meet
global challenges such as food and water scarcity, climate change
and poverty, SELF is working to assign greater priority to the importance
of sustainable energy among international development banks, aid
agencies, foundations, and philanthropic individuals, who are committed
to improving the health, education, and economic prospects of the
world's poorest citizens.
latrines overcome the problems of flies, mosquitoes and odour
by having a pan with a water seal (a U-shaped conduit partly
filled with water) in the defecation hole. Excreta deposited
in the latrine pan is flushed by pouring 2 to 3 litres of
water into it. Water remains in the U-shaped conduit blocking
air flow and odour. The mixture is directed into a pit and
organic wastes are biodegraded. Sludge has to be regularly
emptied from the pit. The use of two adjoining pits alternately
enables the sludge in a full pit to undergo further decomposition
while the other pit is being used, and enables manual sludge
emptying after further sludge decomposition. More water percolates
through the soil surrounding the pit, and the potential for
groundwater pollution is higher. A pour flush toilet with
a pit is therefore not suitable when groundwater table is
close to the surface
Play Pumps www.waterforpeople.org
While children have fun spinning on the PlayPump
merry-go-round (1), clean water is pumped (2) from underground (3)
into a 2,500-liter tank (4), standing seven meters above the ground.
A simple tap (5) makes it easy for adults and children
to draw water. Excess water is diverted from the storage tank back
down into the borehole (6).
The water storage tank (7) provides a rare opportunity
to advertise in outlaying communities. All four sides of the tank
are leased as billboards, with two sides for consumer advertising
and the other two sides for health and educational messages. The
revenue generated by this unique model pays for pump maintenance.
The design of the PlayPump water system makes it
highly effective, easy to operate and very economical, keeping costs
and maintenance to an absolute minimum.
Capable of producing up to 1,400 liters of water
per hour at 16 rpm from a depth of 40 meters, it is effective up
to a depth of 100 meters.
In 2007, the Water For People World Water Corps®
completed a study to determine in which new countries Water For
People would work. The Dominican Republic had immense need for Water
For People’s involvement and was chosen for a new country
United Caribbean Trust (UCT) will be the sole beneficiary
from a Caribbean commercial venture being launched by United Caribbean
Services Inc. (UNSI) and off shore company registered in Barbados
where the Head Office and Administrative center will be located.
Profits from UNSI
will be channeled into UCT to enable the Trust to establish
a humanitarian complex including a Child Care Center featuring
a school/clinic/mission house/sanctuary plus numerous Child
Care Homes and a Women's Empowerment Center.
Seen here and below the Child Care Center.
This plan was originally conceptualized
for Africa by Rev. Ramona Eastmond from Set the Captives Free
and were been drawn by Liz Quintyne Inc.
We are believing God to utilize this system
|Nestled around the Child Care Center
will be the Child Care Homes. Housing 12 orphans and a house
parent in each unit.
This four bedroom two bathroom
home will offer comfortable earthquake and hurricane resistant
housing for these children.
Communal cooking will take place in the Child
Care Center but a small kitchen will be equipped to service
basic needs for the family.
These house plans are being priced through each
of the four manufacturing companies already mentioned and site plans
and business plans are already being looked into.
A Haitian team is already in place and venture capital,
Praise God has been invested into UCSI to assist with the subdivision
and resurveying plus the cost of the site plan, business plan and
basic infrastructure. Once these are all ready UCSI will be seeking
funding to erect the Child Care Center and one Child Care Home on
the 5 acres segregated for this purpose.
The Child Care Center will be used initially as
a Mission House to house 12 missionaries comfortable. UCT will be
promoting these Mission Trips throughout the Caribbean, America
and England to assist with the building process. The Haitian team
will lay the foundations and the missionaries will assist with the
This will be a great Mission Holiday because a team
of 12 can erect one of these houses in less that a week. What a
wonderful achievement. Praise God.
