Operation Hope Foundation started the Rice Bag House project in 2015. Today, our organisation is working to share the rice bag construction method with Nepalese whose houses were damaged by the earthquakes.
Why should you build a rice bag house?
  • Low-cost house – only 290,729 rupees
  • Approved by the government – apply for the grant and build a 200 square feet house without your own money
  • Earthquake-resistant
  • Provides insulation – warm inside the house in winter, cool inside the house in summer

Demonstration of rice bag house withstanding shock

This is a model of a rice bag house which we built using small plastic bags filled with soil to simulate the actual rice bag. The plastic bags are held together with thin velcro tapes that replaces the barb wire used in the actual construction. Using a shaker to simulate an earthquake, the house is able to withstand the shock from the shakings.
