Présentation
Pakistan is to embark on a massive housing programme for the poor. The majority live in the rural areas. We are to build 3 different pilot projects in the rural area of Sindh (Gharo) training masons at the same time. It is to demonstrate that the psychological barrier of earth building being temporary, is false. Provided certain strict rules are followed the buildings will last 50 years and more.
Identify 12 masons (4 each pilot) and train them by building the 3 prototypes. Continuous workshops explaining history and immediate examples of earth construction demonstrating clearly the technological advantages. Make sure that beneficiaries understand that to achieve sustainability for their housing needs, that this is the most economical and environmentally friendly proposal. All soils will be tested and various constituents explained to beneficiaries, how to know which soil type is best for which type of construction. To demonstrate that climatically this solution provides cool in summer and warmth in winter
