My name is Jacob Mzengi from Tanzania studied computer science and engineering at st Joseph University and I am raising funds for our local group known as UJENZI BUNIFU (creative building). This group comprises of six different people (four men, two women) with different profession (Architect, civil, electrical, computer engineer, mechanical and finance).This initiative is to help Tanzanian people who are poor and living in rural areas by building affordable strong houses and schools based on local materials obtained on the surroundings (stones, mud, sand, wood, plastics) known as RAMMED EARTH BUILDING AND PLASTIC BUILDINGS.
People who are poor and those who mostly live in rural areas are living in poor conditions and live on poor houses. They are also have no educations or poor education due to the school located very far away and have no money to support to their children either by fees, uniform or books. By seeing these problems/crisis we have decided to organize our self by dedicatinghelping the lives of the poor by building strong affordable houses and schools so they can live on good conditions and help rise educational level by building schools which are affordable and near to each street/ward so that everyone could get good education. Hence by building better place to live and build schools, we will help improves the lives of the people and eliminate poverty, hunger, ignorance on poor people and rural societies.
We are facing the challenges of capital for building houses for the poor, machines for producing compressed earth bricks (known as compressed earth block machine), machine for moulding plastics blocks.
Though despite of lacking of capital we have managed to build one house that located at Moshi rural area (Tanzania) by using stones and mud mix with low cement.
I am an aspiring director of the group who want to change the lives of the people by improving societies lives conditions, improve educational level within societies and eliminating poverty,hunger and ignorance.
Please help me fulfill our dream by contributing towards our project or sharing this fundraiser with your friends and family!
We are grateful for your help! Thank you, and May God Bless you.
