Arriving in Nepal after a rough journey; 15th June 2018, on a foggy morning our van was delayed due to the traffic jam.
Despite of the hurdles, we met with a startup business that has expertise in making interlocking bricks. Eco cell industries has recently been listed in Forbes Asia's 30 under 30 list of young entrepreneurs; a startup business devoted in manufacturing eco-friendly, earthquake resistant bricks that can be made using a composition of local soil and cement.
ISAK's Project Nepal primarily focuses on infrastructure projects and meeting with eco cell industries broadened our views on sustaining projects by using raw materials and providing training to local community on using Eco cell’s machines to produce bricks.
We felt that sweat labour required during the production of the bricks will allow the community to care and value the project.
