Better Bricks and Lower Emissions in Indonesia

Commitment by

Build Change

In 2013, Build Change committed to working with 200 brickmakers in Sumatra, Indonesia, to improve brick quality, improve brickmakers' business skills and livelihoods, and reduce environmental impacts. Scaling up a successful pilot project in West Sumatra, over the next two years, Build Change will work with 200 brickmakers in Sumatra to standardize production standards and monitor and evaluate business performance, as well as environmental impacts. Build Change will ensure that women have the same opportunities as men to participate in the training, seek out their involvement during discussions and trainings and mentor them as they work to improve brick-making methods, business and livelihoods.
