Shipungu Teachers’ House and Latrine, 2014

Previously there was:

In 2012, Build It International built a rammed earth classroom block in Shipungu, Kapiri.

With your support:

In 2014 we built a teachers’ house and a latrine at Shipungu, training 11 men and women from the community with basic building skills.

11 trainees were trained basic building skills and bricklaying whilst building the teachers’ house. The trainees took a TEVETA bricklaying exam, enabling them to earn a living in construction and provide for themselves and their families.

The rammed earth construction method used to build the classroom meant trainees received no bricklaying training. The trainees are building the house using mud blocks to gain practical knowledge of the bricklaying skills needed to take the TEVETA exam.
