United Nations Online Volunteer Program and the NKa Foundation
I was a volunteer assisting an architect from England named Anna Webster market her mud house design in Ghana. I was assigned to Anna through the NKa Foundation after connecting through the United Nations Online Volunteer Program. The type of mud that is being used in the construction process is common in Ghana and plentiful. It is a replacement for concrete as concrete is imported and much more expensive than the domestically available mud. I have included some literature on the project for your viewing to the right.
