The stray animals are likely to experience more difficulties when human activities resume. They might not be able to find a comfortable and safe place as a shelter, even if they manage to get enough food and water. However, with the growing number of stray furry friends, there is a call for more effective support to the volunteer work for the stray animals, like stray dogs and cats.
Inspiration came from
For animals to survive, they need water, food and shelter. The stray animals might find it difficult to gain these resources once the human activities resume. Shall we do something to help? What about a place that they can call home?
What social problems do you solve?
Students are going to practice the concept of survival and a solid structure for building. They are going to discover ways to build a comfortable and safe shelter for our furry friends. We would like to help stray dogs and cats to get settled in a temporary shelter, before they move on to other location, or they could start a new home with the shelter. The goal is to create a rest station for furry friends for them to continue their journey, eventually, a shelter for the stray animals in need, free from disturbance and danger.
How do we start from 0 to 1
