In 2014, we implemented our pilot project; we re-built two houses for two families of eight members. We trained 27 engineering students and graduates and we gave them the opportunity to have a hands-on experience and to work on the design and the implementation of the project, closely with the local community. In this project, we used a building technique called “rammed earth” it is one of the techniques of earth construction. The main building components are mud, gravel, sand and a small percentage of cement. We do some tests on the mixture and we use wooden formworks to fill in the mixture, compact them and build one wall at a time.
