Very interesting new project

Osafa.org looks like an innovative, yet down-to-earth example of a new grassroots approach in development cooperation.

It looks like it can address the need for innovation in communal architecture in developing countries by applying a collaborative, open-source approach to disseminate and develop new and existing, less costly and more localised, methods for building; schools, hospitals and other infrastructure buildings in rural Africa.

Osafa.org appears to be the kind of initiative that seeks to empower people to find and implement suitable solutions for their own specific problems, that I feel could be very suited to make a positive and sustainable impact in people's lives.

Thanks for your support Bill. I hope that we can indeed bring the idea of Open Source Architecture from theory into practice.
