We still need “a Stabilized Soil Block machine” to build the newest nation Republic South Sudan.
The Soil Block press provides an answer to affordable housing, water storage and sanitation needs at Omilling.
The stabilized Soil Blocks (SSBs) are strong, economical blocks made from a mixture of sub-soil and a small quantity of cement. Almost any soil that contains clay and sand can be used to make between 90 and 150 SSBs per 50kg bag of cement.
The Technology Development and Advisory Unit at the University of Zambia has donated a hand-press interlocking soil block machine to Hope Ofiriha to build the Mario Primary School.
The Rahula Trust has also donated a hand –press interlocking soil machine three years ago. Their gift gave an education to children who have lost years of schooling due to African longest civil conflicts that gave birth to South Sudan Independence on July 9 – this was so great in several ways!
Hope Ofiriha looks forward in working with you until this project is completed. In the next three months a new update will posted to tell you how thing are pregressing from the ground.
