Mud Brick Construction
Mud is used worldwide for construction and building. It is readily available, minimal or zero cash and environmentally benign.
These men make it look easy, but, believe me it isn’t. There is a lot of skill involved.
Baraka often uses mud to construct our Women’s Enterprise Centres and Warehouse. It makes use of local labour and materials, has much less environmental impact and provides more impact to the community. As long as it is built on a good foundation and the bricks are plastered over to prevent erosion and decay it can last for a very long time. There are mud-constructed buildings in Ghana (Mosques) that are hundreds of years old.
You can see more on what a mud constructed building looks like in this video Building and using the Tabiasi Women’s Enterprise Centrehttps://youtu.be/Tq0ScjRXAl4

What we hope you take away from this post more than anything is that you impact women, families and communities when you buy from Baraka and that it is important to know the source of your products and the impact you make
For example, it is so easy to have ‘raw and unrefined’ shea butter that was industrially processed, chemically extracted and all the income and impact ripped from the women and given to the factory. See more in this blog https://barakasheabutter.com/sheabutt...
