The Mlambe Project

Charity description

The Mlambe Project logo
The Mlambe Project is a registered earthbag building and educational charity in Malawi.

Earthbag building addresses the 'triple bottom line', simultaneously tackling environmental, economic and social sustainability issues. After trialling earthbag building with huge success at Mlambe School, we now aim to replicate the technique across other sites in Malawi. Once we’ve perfected this building model, we aim to lobby the government for the technique to be used across the country.

The second strand of the Mlambe Project are our educational initiatives. All secondary schools in Malawi are fee paying, and we’ve therefore begun to put measures in place to overcome this issue. Methods include building a solar-powered computer suite, and introducing the distance learning programmes for both further and higher education.

This will provide a means for pupils to break free from the cycle of poverty into jobs that were once a distant dream.
