PROJECT SUMMARY

Locally-manufactured cob and bamboo school building

This school project in the small village of Jar Maulwi, 35km northwest of Lahore, is an extension of the existing Tipu Sultan Merkez School, which has provided education for underprivileged rural girls for more than ten years.

The new two-story building will provide seven new classrooms. The building was completed in March 2013 and is made from locally-sourced cob and bamboo. The structure is divided into two compact parts connected by a light gallery to mitigate earthquake risk.
