What is your superpower?
We build super fast and economic houses in a more secure construction site using sustainable materials, inspiring innovation in the construction industry, especially the low cost sector.
What SDG is your organization integrating into its core competency?
Our company is trying to solve many problems at once. We want to promote SDGs #1 – no poverty, #6 – clean water and sanitation, #7 – affordable and clean energy, #9 – industry, innovation and infrastructure, #10 – reduce inequalities, #11 – sustainable cities and communities, #12 – responsible consumption and production and #15 – life on land.
Every hero has a villain – what challenges do you or your targeted group face?
The powerful construction industry is our monster. Construction companies old thoughts about how things should be, create a very difficult path. Slowly we are growing and gaining space to fight and PRINT our first home.
What are you doing to overcome your villain?
Our company has tried many different strategies for the past 4 years. We received some public investments to keep researching and developing our product, fought some companies to gain their support, and now we are working with the government to write laws and regulations so we can build our first house, guaranteeing its safety.
Who is your hero and why?
I will choose Malala as my super hero and inspiration. I believe that education is the most powerful tool we can offer a human being. Women are much more stronger than the world sees and Malala represents that to me, a strong woman that fights for education.
