We are a super-efficient social innovation project in real world fight against poverty. We do a post-research spin-off: we build simple concrete floors in rural and slum schools and family houses. It brings to life impressive SDG output in public health, self-employment and inclusive education. We started with an academic SDG3 research. Now we master in SDG8, SDG4 and SDG1 in Africa

Floor4Africa & Pandemics

London, 11 March 2023

Today is the third anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic. WHO declared it on 11 March 2020. That time we even didn't expect our project can have anything to do with pandemics. We deal with soil-transmitted NTDs, when you consider "Floor4Africa" in the Public Health prism. But finally it appeared that COVID19 virus can last on the dust particles over two weeks. Therefore, we realised what a value we bring to prevention of such a pandemic. When you can clean the concrete floor at schol or at home COVID can't spread too easy. We know well that all schools and family houses in Africa should have concrete floors. People ought to be able also to learn and live in conditions preventing pandemics. As you see, it's so easy to provide concrete floors. It doesn't take more than $5/sqm. Cleaning is so obvious but ca. 500 million Africans still are not able to do it in the 21st century.

One planet but two worlds

London, 7 March 2023

A big debate is on in the UK right now. The topic: migrants coming illegally to this country in small boats via the the English Channel. Our professional experience doesn't let us think this problem can be solved at once. Even technological progress, incl. robots and drones, can be not enough to solve the issue all the world has with migrations these days. What we know well, grassroots impact projects like our "Floor4Africa" work also with preventing migration very well. Our research shows that up to 40% surveyed people want to stay at home and develop their local community environment, when they see how easy is to start a real fight against poverty they experience over there. So, all the Europe is facing raising issues regarding migrations. It is possible to reduce their number significantly, in fact. But we really have to understand that illegal immigrants are not only smart men, who can afford to get here in small boat. Migration mostly starts when someone can't cope with poverty anymore.

Poverty & Education

London, 5 March 2023

When we visited Kibera slum in Nairobi last time, it appeared that a cup of tea with milk can be found as a breakfast for many children supposed to stay and learn at school. Such 'meal' can have not more than 60kcal. Providing safe 300kcal more to them is so easy these days. There are instant porridges and fruit jellies you can put in a mug and just mix with hot water. They can significantly increase the efficiency of education, in fact. And the total cost is even less than 1 USD only. You know we build concrete floors for about $5/sqm. Optimisation is our domain: "It doesn't take much to change this world of ours so much!"

Local Development in Africa

London, 25 February 2023

Nigeria decides about the future today. Nigerians vote in general election. All our fingers crossed for that unique country. We carried out the F4A implementation i.a. in Ajegunle, Lagos. This is a good example how our scientific impact and crisis response project works with SDGs in local development prism, for the slum and rural areas of Africa. When we have built the concrete floor in Ajegunle school in Lagos, they are able to build strong walls now (thanks to the local community engagement). When people see how easy and efficient can be co-operation for SDGs, they want to do more and more. Concrete floor is a base for everything else. Have a look, we are so proud!

F4A Impact Development

London, 15 February 2023

Roman and Stanislaw paid visit to Kibera - one of the biggest urban slums in Africa. They were joined by our Joyce and her creative nephew Tirus, together with three local community officials. The Kibera experience was so touching and extensive that we decide to deliver a symposium on it, still this academic year. Discussion over issues related to poverty, social inequalities in urban slums is a must, in our professional opinion. We'll invite social sciences specialists, activists and stakeholders to talk about the reality we faced in that slum. What is crucial now, our impact project has to be upgraded. Looks like we start to build bridges too. Some refurbishment has to be done to the bridge many children go to that public school we've started to co-operate with in Kibera.

Meeting with Joyce

London, 8 February 2023

Floor4Africa researchers are in Nairobi now. Roman and Grazyna met their friend Joyce in Nairobi. They spoke about schools located in the biggest African slum "Kibera". Moreover, they had a great conversation about the West Pokot county in north-western Kenya. Taking into account the number of schools with internal soil floor only, that Kenyan county can be a model for delivering a systematic improvement of the quality of learning conditions as well as crisis response jobs. So, more meetings to go. Let's see what the nearest future can bring to Floor4Africa impact project.

Back to Kenya

London, 1 February 2023

Floor4Africa researchers go back to Kenya. Our crisis response and scientific impact project was created in Kenya in 2018. Now we return with a lot of field experience, many more team members onboard and new strategic goals. Today we are not focused on SDG3 and SDG8 issues. Today we do the SDG4 and SDG1 solution too. The project development led us to the stage we can implement it in any part of rural and urban slum areas of Africa. Now we can provide instant access to work even for migrants and illegal immigrants to integrate and re-integrate them with local communities for good. New flyers: ready to go!
