Affordable Construction - Eastern Cape

Drayini Village, near Idutywa


  • Samarpan volunteers were met with great excitement and enjoyed a warm welcome celebration upon first arrival in the rural village of Drayini. The entire community demonstrated their enthusiasm and eager participation in this project by filling hundreds of PET bottles in anticipation of the meeting!

  • PET bottle filling is in full swing and the foundation has been dug in order to build a new facility to house the Matolweni Early Childhood Development Centre (ECDC) and to demonstrate the innovative and affordable building method to the community.

  • The current structure is inadequate, unsafe and cannot accommodate the number of young children in the area. The new facility will bring much needed relief.
