Simple, easy to understand educational resources can be used to train local communities to build their own shelters. One of our main objectives is to develop these educational resources in a variety of media including video, print, CD ROM and the Internet. Please visit our Publications page to access these resources. BWB is developing additional resources that will become available in the near future.
