Habitat Initiative Cabo Delgado, Mozambique

In the north of Mozambique eleven preschools and community centres were realised by local craftsmen using an innovative earth and bamboo construction system. The seven schools have a maximum span of 6 m and four more simple dwellings were completed in a system similar to that used locally. A training program was initiated that aimed to develop and strengthen the local building culture which is based on natural resources and simple handicraft techniques.
