A 3-day extensive training was conducted at HF’s Zero Carbon Cultural Centre (ZC3), Makli. Where 7 trainees from Islamic Relief and 9 trainees from representatives of local community from Harnai, Balochistan participated. Some of them were skilled masons, therefore it was beneficial for them to learn zero carbon construction technique and add to their expertise & experience. Training was conducted by HF’s Master Trainer Mr. Naheem Shah and Senior Architect Ashfaq Ahmed. Participants were energized and thrilled at learning such valuable techniques and methods of building earthquake resilient structures using detailed step-by-step demonstrations from online video tutorials along with printed drawings and banners.

I have begun this series in order to develop record of how various karigar villages with their specialized barefoot enterprises are moving forward. As more information is coming in it is good to know that some have begun earning small amounts through their enterprise- some of the income is from subsidized products that Heritage Foundation has supported, but some is also happening because other villages in need of affordable and low cost products.

I am getting regular reports from the villages and it is heartening to note how busy all villagers are in trying to improve their environment. While reports are being prepared on each village’s performance and production capabilities, it is important to discuss the results achieved in relation to the provision of shelter.
