Moladi – Innovation in affordable low cost housing construction technology
Decent housing is one of the key factors in the fight against poverty and social exclusion. It is not just about putting a roof over someone’s head. Academic research proves that access to a clean and stable home implicates an improvement in security, health and education. Moladi, a South African based company, makes housing accessible to low-income people through innovative and eco-friendly technology. The Moladi system consists of a reusable and recyclable plastic formwork mould, which is filled with mortar (stone less concrete) and a special concrete additive. The formwork can be reused up to 50 times. According to the founder Hennie Botes, the brick-less walls can withstand all types of weather. The formwork is lightweight allowing easy transportation.
