ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT

Environmental Commitment

Traditional brick-making in sub-Saharan Africa involves the draining of wetlands to create mud bricks that are baked for weeks in large kilns. It takes one ton of firewood to create 1000 bricks, leading to deforestation. We use an environmentally sustainable technology called “Interlocking Stabilized Soil Bricks.”

Our bricks are made with a simple, human-powered press. In addition to being 50% larger than typical mud bricks, their interlocking nature adds structural stability and reduces the amount of cement required for the mortar layer between the rows of bricks, which significantly reduces the cost of construction and gives our company a competitive market advantage.

Our company also specializes in the construction of water and sanitation systems. We have completed over 470+ projects throughout Uganda, providing clean, safe water for 200,000 people and saving over 22 acres from deforestation.
