Building Brighter Futures: Changing lives in Zambia through a sustainable building programme
Build It International is an international development charity working in areas of Africa where there is a chronic need for affordable housing, schools and clinics.
Alongside this lack of essential facilities there is a massive skills shortage in the construction sector.
Our response is to work with local communities to build essential facilities in an environmentally friendly way. We do this by training local people in building skills and maximising the use of local resources.
In 2013 we are undertaking 4 building projects that will impact 19,000 people. Our training programme will help 68 people earn a new skill and access work in construction.
The video below is called Building Brighter Futures and it takes a look at what life is like in Zambia and how we work, why we do it, and who we help:
