Who We Are

At EarthEnable, we believe that our clients deserve our very best, that work should be fun, and that the best ideas could come from any part of the company. We celebrate each other’s wins, learn from our setbacks, and are deeply proud of the impact we make every day. We believe that a home that doesn’t make you sick means more than living disease free. It means pride and dignity in the place our customers most treasure: their homes. Being a part of our team means more than building housing products: it means building an organization and building a better future for rural families.

What We Do


EarthEnable is transforming the way people live, by making homes healthier for families across rural Rwanda and Uganda. 62% of Rwandans and Ugandans live in homes with dirt floors which are dusty, unsanitary, and fertile breeding grounds for parasites and germs. While replacing a dirt floor with concrete has significant health benefits (e.g. reducing diarrhea by 50% and parasitic infections by 80%), concrete is unaffordable for many who need it.

EarthEnable addresses this pressing and ubiquitous problem by selling high-quality, earthen floors that are 80% cheaper than concrete with 96% less carbon emissions. Our earthen floors are composed of natural materials (gravel, clay, sand, and laterite) and sealed using a proprietary drying oil that makes them waterproof, strong, and polished. EarthEnable trains and certifies micro-franchisees who run their own businesses selling and installing the floors in their communities. EarthEnable has already enabled 65,000 people to live on clean, beautiful floors across Rwanda and Uganda, and has big plans to scale across East Africa and beyond in the coming years.

About EARTHENABLE

Mission Statement

Healthy Housing Solutions in Africa

Description

EarthEnable provides Rwandans with healthier homes by training local masons to craft an affordable and durable earthen floor. The floor is composed of natural materials (gravel, clay, sand, and other additives) and sealed with a layer of proprietary drying oil that makes the floor impermeable, easy to clean, and polished. Dirt and mud floors are a major cause of infectious disease, respiratory illness, malnutrition, and vector-borne disease. And while a clean and dry floor made of concrete would cost a Rwandan family as much as $300 for a 20 square meter home, EarthEnable will floor a home for 15% of the price. We can be reached at info@earthenable.org.
