The purpose of this project is to provide a space for the woman of the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village in Rwanda; to not only learn how to create a self-sufficient community, but also economic and financial independence. The new buildings will provide crucial opportunities for the village on their path of recovery from the Rwandan genocide that occurred in 1994. There will be a total of four new buildings; a storefront, community center, work space, and a building for pineapple and mango prep. The project is headed by the non-profit organization of Empowering Villages, in conjunction with Journeyman International. The project was interdisciplinary, with architect, architectural engineer, and construction managers working together throughout the year. The construction manager is responsible for a conceptual estimate, quantity takeoff, the project schedule, site utilities analysis, hazard and risk analysis, a site and safety plan, SWPPP, and. feasibility analysis.
