In 2008, under the programme of post-tsunami reconstruction that occurred in the Indian Ocean in 2004, she was 6 months a volunteer in Indonesia, with the Emergency Architects Foundation, developing and monitoring the construction of houses to rehouse the population affected by the earthquake. In 2009, she settled in Auroville (international community in southern India) where she worked for 2 years in architectural offices, proving to be a very rich experience in the diversified learning of local construction techniques, environmentally friendly and cost-effective.
Today, in Mozambique, the country where she lived throughout her teenage years and where she currently lives, after the invitation and exchange of ideas with the founder of the NGO The Big Hand for children’s, decides to take forward the implementation of this dream. This way, she moves to the creation of a centre for training, research and development of ecological and cost effective construction techniques. This centre aims at creating tools that allow the people of Mozambique to significantly increase housing conditions and its future sustainability. This is a project born in Mozambique and for Mozambique.
