Current company focus is on Post Hurricane Felix Reconstruction for the Municipality of Rosita, RAAN, under funding from the Spanish NGO Junta Andalucia. This program is for 84 houses (34m2) destined for four indigenous communities in the area of Rosita. CO2 Bambu is engaged in dialogue with several municipalities in the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua to build upon this program and introduce eco housing throughout the region.
As of December 2012, the Rosita program was completed and turned over to the Municipality of Rosita and the indigenous communities that are beneficiaries of Junta Andalucia's program. Through this program, CO2 Bambu built a large bamboo processing facility, trained local community members to harvest bamboo groves and established several construction teams able to assemble CO2 Bambu houses anywhere in Nicaragua.
Schools: CO2 Bambu has developed a rural school design which meets the requirements of the ministry of Education and is expected to play a role in reducing the large deficit of rural schools in Nicaragua.
Completed model home for Lutheran World Federation as a proof of concept to demonstrate the technical merits of bamboo housing for Haiti. Please visit LWF logistics compound in Leogane to see CO2 Bambu's home.
In order to circumvent the current gridlock in Haiti's NGO community relative to the deployment of housing solutions, CO2 Bambu initiated a pioneering program with Haiti's largest bank's micro-finance unit, SOGESOL. Housing micro-finance pilot started in the region of Petit Goave, the epicenter of Haiti's earthquake.
In parallel to shelter activities, CO2 Bambu is pioneering in Haiti with the development of guadua plantations using rare Nicaraguan guadua seeds
