On January 8th a team of dedicated volunteers successfully carried out a third RSK Shelter training course in Kathmandu.
Each training course is preceded by detailed preparations over several zoom meetings between the London RSK Shelter representative and the RSK field team in Kathmandu. Working together we have built a template that shows how well instructions for assembling and building RSK shelter kits can be delivered "virtually " to anywhere emergency shelters may be required. It is hoped that the template will eventually be reduced to a series of simple diagrams and check points that will empower every shelter response team, in countries with local bamboo resources, to be able to use this emergency shelter.
The following photos show the high standard of RSK shelter frame building that the enthusiasm and teamwork of the Kathmandu team were able to achieve. Importantly all the checkpoints for the bamboo frame were correctly completed, and only small adjustments will be made when they next build this shelter. This is a training exercise and final tarpaulin attachment to the frame will be completed at the next training course. I am really looking forward to the next RSK training session with this group.
