We have also started an e-mail exchange with an NGO out of Australia called Classrooms of Hope. They have built 5 schools on the island of Lombok using a new technology called Eco Bricks. They are bricks made of plastic waste.
Classrooms of Hope has opened a new factory to produce these bricks in Lombok which is only 2 islands over from Flores.
Its honestly miraculous because every other company I’ve contacted said it would be years before they would be able to bring the technology to Indonesia or the facilities already producing construction materials made of waste in Indonesia have not been tested and approved. I am hoping to build our school in Flores out of these Eco-Bricks.
I’ve attached a short video of the school in Lombok and I’ve also attached the Power Point I discussed with architects last week regarding phase one of building. Phase one will probably not begin until September or October. We are clearing and preparing the land and still raising funds. (hence the video).
Thank you again for all you’ve already given to this project and thank you for your offer to help with the making of the video.
