Geographical remit: 


The Mlambe Project helps communities in Malawi by building schools using sustainable building techniques. Since starting in Malawi, we have developed the Mlambe Primary School into a complete primary school, meaning more local children can complete their primary education. We have also equipped local people with the building skills needed to make money from their services and to become self-sufficient. We also have a positive impact on the environment as all of our building techniques are sustainable and low-impact. 


  • Sustainable school building, using Earthbags and Stabilised Soil Bricks
  • University education programmes for our mature students
  • Nursery feeding programmes, to make sure children have access to a breakfast meal before school
  • The Mlambe social enterprise: we have equipped our building experts with the skills to make a living through sustainable building in Malawi
