Plastic building for earthquake survivors.

29/09/2018 at 16:44

Hi there. We are Pituq Community Foundation, a non-profit and non governmental organization located in Lombok, Indonesia, where we have had devestating earthquakes in July and August causing severe damage to thousands of homes thus leaving nearly 500 000 people homeless. We have been working hard to distribute supplies and equipment to the affected areas and as the situation is progressing, now is the time to start rebuilding the homes. We have had the idea of creating a new product from recycled plastic to build homes for those in need even before the earthquakes hit and now even more than before we want to go forward with our plans to create a new product that would not only be cost effective but it would also be environmentally friendly, possibly create hundreds of jobs. Last but definitely not least the finished houses would be earthquake resistant and prevent losses in case of other future tremors. We have a great community around us locally and internationally and we are close to getting more funding to speed up this project but what we are lacking now is the knowledge to build the proper machines to make our product. We want to build the machine ourselves but we need help with that. We are looking for people with the skills to build it and perhaps come to help us here in location to get started. You can find out more about us on our website http://www.pituq.com and social media @pituqcofoundation (Facebook and instagram) thank you for your time and looking forward to hearing some great suggestions and making new contacts so that we can make this world a better place.
