Eco Designs involvement in the construction of Block B of the 7 Fountains Primary School in Shayamoya near township in Kokstad, Kwa-Zulu Natal, included consulting with East Coast Architects as well as a series of workshops on adobe brick making and building as well as natural plastering. The use of locally available materials allowed for the training and employment of 34 local unemployed women.

The project was funded by Oprah's Angel Network.
