Lorna commented on Affordable building materials from waste

Hi Kevin 
thank you for that clarification. i have taken time to go through your website and for me the information that make the tiles and blocks from waste is clear but the information that you sell the tiles and blocks is not very clear on Facebook and Twitter. They also need links to your website.
Also having a place in your site that indicates how cost effective it is would be great. Like giving an example of how much someone saved by using your products. 
Otherwise I do think this is a great idea and would be a customer for sure

Kevin this is a great project I am really impressed and I for me this is a new concept of reusing trash.
One suggestion for beneficiaries would be the construction industry 
Also you have not mentioned how people can access your blocks and tiles and success stories of those who have used them

Hi Kevin, great question . No it is not a CSR [Corporate Social responsibility]. Working with young people has taught me that they tend to take it for granted when things are offered for free. My plan is to use a method where there is some form of payment to be a part of the program and get training and where we can inspect and buy the best from the youth in the program, like what is done with farmers at times. Also to encourage the young people in the program to independently look for their own markets to see to. I think this method can also allow them to chose to do the fabric decoration on part time basis as they pursue  further education on various fields or fashion related ones as well
