Community Making Bricks (2009)

The next step was to make the bricks, which would be used to build the school.  In collaboration with the Ariang community, the youth and women hand-made over 300,000 bricks to construct Ariang School. The bricks were made through the mixing of sand, clay, cow dung, and water and simple wooden brick molds. The process was then completed, by the building of a kiln to fire the bricks. This technique and composition of the bricks guarantee they are long-lasting.
