Community School, Debre Birhan, Ethiopia

Engineers Without Borders teams with The Community Project: Ethiopia to increase public health through education and sanitation in Kabele 06 in Debre Birhan. This project will develop a community school, a community center and community gardens within the Habitat for Humanity community in Debre Birhan.

At this time the foundation has been laid for the first of 5 school buildings. Production of compressed earth blocks (CEBs) is underway toward a goal of 12,500 for the first building. Design parameters have been completed for windows, doors, and the roof. The goal is to have the first building open for K-2 students in the fall of 2018.

The overall goal is for the Habitat for Humanity community to build the remaining 4 school buildings based on design and construction of the first building with EWB PMP’s guidance.
