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, an award
winning South African based company, makes housing accessible to low-income people through innovative and eco-friendly technology,
creating employment.

The moladi system consists of a reusable and recyclable plastic formwork or mould, which is filled with mortar (stone-less concrete) and a special concrete additive. Once the mortar is set, the formwork can be removed – and reused up to 50 times. the brick-less walls can withstand all types of weather and is earthquake resistant. due to the simplicity in design and the repetitive application scheme, construction costs can be reduced significantly from the lightweight system. the moladi model is not only cost-effective but fast, too – the wall structure of a house can be completed within a day. in remote areas, the construction does not require heavy machinery or electricity.

Combining construction with economic development, moladi offers local training for the unemployed, thereby creating jobs and empowering
the community as a whole. due to the simplicity of the approach, construction techniques and skills can be transferred in a short time.
in this way, the communities benefit from affordable shelter and skilled entrepreneurs at the same time.
