Eco-Block Project

We focus on a simple, low-cost, block making technology used for building house, schools, clinics, water–tanks and latrines. Known as interlocking stabilized soil block (ISSB) technology, the blocks are made of soil, which is mixed with a small amount of cement and are compressed into blocks in a hand-press machine and kept moist to “cure” these blocks have an interlocking feature on top and bottom and both ends which simplifies construction.

The Foundation is committed to training the youth to adopt such technology and mobilize resources to acquire the machines for them for their income generation.
