• Masonry Class – Technical School

    Masonry is an Important Trade in Haiti

    Masonry is an important trade in Haiti. The government just recently released building codes, so it will make things easier to teach not only to the curriculum but to the new standards. The students will learn the methodology but become “hands on” proficient in the masonry systems. It will include concrete ratios, slab prep and pour, reinforcement, column and beam fabrication, brick work, block laying, pargeting, and much more.

    Student kit includes:

    Safety glasses / gloves
    Ear plugs
    Tool Apron
    Pencil / marker
    Tape measure / mason’s ruler
    Hammer / nail puller
    Chalk box / plumb bob
    Utility knife
    9” mason brick trowel
    Mason’s line & blocks
    Jointer
    Rubber boots
    8” torpedo level

    Each student kit is $135. Please consider donating to sponsor a student, or take a look at the needed equipment list and donate towards a larger tool or equipment that will be used in training students from multiple classes.
