"We still need a stabilized Interlocking Soil Block Machine to build Omilling local Infrastructures"

The University of Zambia and Rahula Trust (UK), each has donated a hand –press interlocking machine. Since South Sudan got its Independence on July 9 2011 there are needs to build schools and healthcare post clinics. The demand to build have overcome the supplies of the two machines. Every village want to make soil blocks and people fight over the use of the interlocking soil block machines because they aren’t enough to cover the growing demand.

The interlocking block gives an answer to affording school buildings, water storage and sanitation needs at Omilling and Magwi County at large. The stabilized soil blocks are strong, economical blocks made from a mixture of sub-soil with a small quantity of cement. A bag of cement can be used to make between 90 and 150 SSBs which most villages can afford.

HO looks forward in working with you until this project is completed. In the next coming three months a new updated will be posted to report how thing are changing from the ground.
