Simplicity with Style

Image Recently the prestigious magazine Open House International, published an article about the post-Mitch reconstruction project in Malacatoya, Nicaragua. It describes the different project phases, but especially emphasizes that the “beneficiaries” are treated as real “clients”.

The article is published on the EcoSouth website in the original English version with special permission of “Open House International”.
