HISPANIOLA-DESIGN PER SOLIDARIETÀ
BY MODOLOCO DESIGN - CLAUDIO LARCHER
FOR ASSOCIAZIONE COLORESPERANZA
The Hispaniola-Design project for solidarity involved ten designers in the creation of school desks intended for schools and educational facilities located in socially disadvantaged areas in the Dominican Republic. Managed by the Dominican OnéRespé NGO and supported by the Italian ColorEsperanza Asociation, these facilities - usually called "esquelitas" – are home to hundreds of Haitians and Dominicans children excluded from public education. The aim of the initiative is twofold: on the one hand to bring attention, now dormant, to the difficult socio-economic situation of Haiti, and on the other to make a concrete contribution to the local economy through the initiation of a process of virtuous development, capable of combining design and craftsmanship and promoting “threefold” local cooperation, between Italy, Haiti and the neighboring Dominican Republic. A jury of experts selected three proposals from the 10 prototypes developed by the designers: these will subsequently be implemented and put into production in the local Dominican joineries, all initiatives related to social support, and distributed in the "escuelitas", thus generating an original, socially valid and high quality production line all at the same time. Designed for children aged 3 to 8 years, the banks are constructed from environmentally friendly materials that are readily available locally (mainly wood).
