Environment-friendly Bricks

This project aims to scale up the production of soil-stabilised bricks for urban and rural areas in Malawi. Inputs including local earth, sand, cement and water will be used in producing the brick, saving approximately 14 trees per standard house, as firewood is not required in the production process. The project will identify and train urban affiliates and rural hubs in producing this high quality brick and offer production support and quality control. A total of over 250 new jobs will be created and an estimated 8,200 trees will be saved per year.
