The Dome Lombok team is working to start building earthbags domes and teaching our building techniques to help communities rebuild. Domes are known to be one of the most earthquake resistant forms of building. They are fast to build and cost less than traditional housing materials. With this knowledge in our hands we are unable not to support the people who now more than anything need to feel safe to go back inside, to be able to live in a house again.
We will focus on teaching people to build their own Earthbag houses and supplying materials to help rebuild villages.
Donate to Dome’s Building Campaign and help us rebuild peoples houses in North Lombok.
With £20,000 we can start to build family houses for those effected by the earthquake and teach people our technique. With this knowledge and our support we believe that communities can rebuild their homes.
Why rebuild with Domes:
Ø Highly earthquake resistant
Ø Quick to build – a team of 5-10 workers can complete the basic structure within 2 weeks
Ø Community can learn the technique and build their own homes
Ø Materials needed are easy to source and inexpensive
In 2015 all of Nepal’s 55 Earthbag structures survived a 7.8 magnitude earthquake with no structural damage. The technique was used to help rebuild many homes and villages in Nepal.
