Original Project Scope
After decades in the harsh climate of the sub-Sahara, the original Galmi Hospital building in Niger has deteriorated significantly. The demand increases for quality health-care, and the vision grows for training and discipleship in the hospital, but Galmi cannot hope to meet the demands, or embrace the vision, without major renovation work.

EMI sent a team to Galmi in October 2007, and this first phase of proposed renovations is now nearing completion. A second team is now needed to evaluate the best course of action for continuing renovations and expansions to the facility.

This is a surgical hospital that will require sophisticated design specific to health care needs. If you have the skills, here is a great way to serve the people of Niger.
