NEPAL - Bhaura - 2021
In the remote city of Kalaiya, Nepal, numerous poor families live in mud and thatch houses without basic services. However, in the community of Bhaura, a remarkable transformation occurred. Through the collective endeavors of the community, the municipality, and supporting organizations, 30 families rebuilt their homes from scratch on the same land. This project became a catalyst for innovation, by embracing cost-effective and sustainable construction techniques, such as compressed earth blocks. The success of the Bhaura housing project has not gone unnoticed, inspiring similar initiatives in different corners of the city.
