Project focus - 50 NV houses in N’Golobougou (Mali)

This season the Dubaï Charity Association (DCA) financed the construction of 50 NV houses, each of 26m2, in the village of N’Golobougou, Mali.

These building sites together involved the training and employability of many local masons. The 50 beneficiary families are now enjoying the comfort of Nubian Vault houses: thermal (cool interiors), acoustic (attenuation of outside noise), and daily use (solid weatherproof houses with roof terraces).

    The completion of a project this size is a great asset for AVN’s programme because it permits a rapid diffusion of the NV concept in the target zones, resulting in multiple impacts: employability of youngsters, strengthening of local economies, improvement of families’ living conditions, visible examples of the NV concept...
    AVN is delighted to be able to benefit from this continuing partnership with DCA, which has already lasted for several seasons.
