Beyond the response PMI in the first week already identify the needs of transitional shelter for beneficiaries. PMI erect 516 transitional shelter. The highlight of this presentation is the basic of the t-shelter activities which is the community participation. The beneficiaries are the main actor in this activity, therefore the shelter process become one of the activity that enhanced the ability of community to become more resilience because the beneficiaries are the center of the activity. Compare to another agency that also build t-shelter in Mentawai, the process and the output from PMI shelter project more better because the differences in project approach. Others agency did not involved the community aspart of the project.
