Extending our focus alongside the Nawamis Desert Project improvements to the neighbouring Nawamis Village are also planned for the future. The first project will be to complete the Community makhad or meeting place – a central building where community elders can meet together sheltered from the sun and wind. This makhad will be constructed using the local stone and earth bricks hand-made from sand and clay. The intention is that these very practical earth bricks may also be used to clad the village houses at present made from cement blocks. This may encourage a more environmentally sound method of house construction in other parts of the desert.
