    New houses in Mutakwa village
    By - Tony Kaye - President, Association la Voute Nubienne
    Since my report of three months back, we have been looking into ways of continuing and scaling up our pilot program in Zambia; this would involve setting up one or more partnerships or franchises with local organizations, and recruiting a project manager to coordinate the program. Progress is being made, and our...

    All quiet on the Zambian front
    By - Tony Kaye - President, Association la Voute Nubienne (AVN)
    This is now the rainy season in Zambia, so no further work has been carried out for the AVN project in the field. There have been some technical problems to analyze and overcome, concerning the quality and composition of the earth used for the adobe bricks in the vaults. When the next construction season starts in the...

    Preparing for the next construction season
    By - Tony Kaye - Member of AVN Management Committee
    The construction season in the villages of the Chibombo District in Zambia runs from May to November, during the driest months of the year. So there is little to report from the field since my last update in November, at the end of the successful first VN construction season. However, there has been a lot of activity...

    By - Tony Kaye - Member of AVN Management Committee

    First NV house completed
    By - Tony Kaye - AVN Management Committee
    The first Nubian vault house* in Zambia was successfully completed on August 11th, in the village of Mutakwa. The work was a little behind schedule, as the masons ran out of bricks, and then the truck used to go collect more bricks ran out of petrol... But the client - she is about to move into her new house - is very happy...

    Moving on up (to sustainable housing!)
    By - Troy Smith - In the field Visitor
    So there I was, riding with what seemed like about 30 people, in a mini-bus suited for about 8. I had my super huge, super “I am a tourist” backpack on my lap, while I shared the front seat with a chicken I thought was dead, but turned out to be most definitely alive. The driver was rocking a Boy Scout uniform from...
