In this part of the Andes, most houses are made of dirt because it is the most abundant and economical material in all those agricultural areas.

We think that this building knowledge could beneficiate many families of our village. So this year, PASPLE has the challenge of training a group of young people and parents of the children so that they can improve their construction techniques and have better quality houses at minimal cost.


Also, we think that the construction with dirt bricks is not only for poor people because if we use the right technique, then we can have a house that is economical, safe, beautiful and respectful with the environment.
