Build durable homes from local soil - Training for communities and NGOs - Nepal


 

Free 10 days Training course

Time:     03 to 13th November 2017
Venues: Abari Earthbuilding Group and Sunrise Urban Permaculture Farm

 

Training for communities and NGO to turn soil into flood resilient building blocks, sub floors, floor screeds, renders and plasters.

  • Cheap to produce building material
  • Disaster-resilient homes
  • Local income for communities

All it takes is to learn how to stabilise local soil with small amounts of lime.

Two of the world’s leading specialists in lime and sustainable building are coming to Nepal in November 2016 to deliver a ten-day training course in “stabilising soil with lime”. The purpose is to increase skills and capacity for organisations working in post-earthquake recovery in Nepal.

 

Over 100,000 homes built from stabilised soil blocks in Pakistan have already demonstrated their strength and durability in flood conditions.  This DFID-funded programme effectively saved $70m compared to conventional construction.  Stafford Holmes and Bee Rowan ran the training programmes for DFID in Pakistan, and are condensing the training into only 10 days in Kathmandu in early November.
