How we help communities

The People


Skills Training

Building-related skills are taught to unskilled and handicapped people in Urban and Rural areas by way of manufacturing our unique concrete bricks ‘by hand’.

When Ready, the learners are trained to build/extend their own houses (top structures). This is done in a relatively short period of time.


Job Creation

Our Unique Brick Manufacturing
& Building System creates up to 25 sustainable jobs within a community.

Of which, 15 in the manufacturing
process & 5-10 in the construction
of top structures.

Several Business/Entrepreneurial Opportunities are also created.



Press Release by Messrs EIN PRESSWIRE of Washington DC was launched.

Aside from prime-media visibility, we offer Product and Service promotion in a variety of ways within the expedition, as well as a multitude of branding opportunities.

Building Homes & Churches


Emergency Housing

When we receive an urgent call from a community-based organization for the re-construction of a house that has burned-down or severely damaged by nature.

Due to financial constraints we are not always able to concede to such requests.

Your support/donations will ensure that we would be able to respond positively, quickly.


One Day House

The house is constructed with our African Concrete Bricks, manufactured on-site by the local community.

Every house comes complete with electricity/solar-powered energy and equipped for a water-borne sewer system.

Starting with a completed concrete slab, workers can build the house in 1 day.


Underground Shelter

Our underground shelters are uniquely designed for the family who needs isolation from, for example, COVID-19 pandemic, but cannot afford to purchase an extravagant shelter.

You and your family are guaranteed safety when self-isolated underground – encased in a Solid Concrete Structure.
Our 10’ x 20’ Underground Shelter includes a Living room, Bathroom and Bedroom.
