Earthbag Building, Gol Dunga
We ourselves are new to building with Earth Bags, but 8 days after the 25th April 2015 earthquake struck we began building a community shelter in collaboration with Hotel Holy Himalaya in the community of Golgunga where 100 buildings were destroyed.
The project is to build a 10 x 15 ft (3 x 4.57 m) community centre with the participation of community members and to demonstrate earth bag building methods as we are doing so.
The building will provide shelter for the most vulnerable community members over the monsoon and will be used as a demonstration site for people interested to learn about earth bag building.
If you are interested to come and learn or to volunteer your labour please come and join us. The site is just north of Balaju on the road to Kakani.
