T-ext of the Ecovillage in the East African Community-(ENGLISH/JAPANESE)-
The East African Community is an organization formed by citizens of Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi, the five countries surrounding Lake Victoria.
Lake Victoria is the biggest lake in Africa. It is the third biggest lake in the world. It is known as " Darwin's Dreampond", well known for its biodiversity.
In the present time, Lake Victoria is a place of serious problems.
This project aims to construct a model base of activities to help alleviate these problems.
This arrangement is designed so that each cluster can enjoy precious water resources equally and reasonably comfortably.
Each cluster is composed of four living units, each one with a living room, two bedrooms, a kitchen, toilet, shower room, and meditation room. All the buildings are built with Earth-bag Construction Technology (Eco-Tec 01).
Each unit has a biomass latrine(Eco-Tec 02).
Each unit has a Bird Wing Wind Power Generator (Eco-Tec 03) that supplies electricity. In order to lead the wind effectively, bamboo groves have been planted as wind corridors for each generator.(Eco-Tec 05)
