“It’s very inspiring to see so many Nepali people being very eager to learn about Earthbag technology. We have posted an announcement about our upcoming earthbag training workshops and one of the questions was:
– “What is your plan after completing the training? What are you planning to build using the EarthBag technology?”

Here are some of the answers we got:

  1. The fuel shortage in Nepal has made it extremely difficult and expensive to get things done. It’s amazing anything gets done. There’s a photo on their website of people lined up for a mile or so to get fuel. People wait in line for days and rotate with friends and family members to use the restroom. And obviously transport costs are now sky high, assuming you can even find trucks with fuel.
