Who We Are
At EarthEnable, we believe that our clients deserve our very best, that work should be fun,
and that the best ideas could come from any part of the company. We celebrate each
other’s wins, learn from our setbacks, and are deeply proud of the impact we make every
day. We believe that a home that doesn’t make you sick means more than living diseasefree. It means pride and dignity in the place our customers most treasure: their homes.
Being a part of our team means more than building housing products: it means building an
organization and building a better future for rural families.
What We Do


EarthEnable is transforming the way people live, by making homes healthier for families
across rural Rwanda. 80% of Rwandans live in homes with dirt floors which are dusty,
unsanitary, and fertile breeding grounds for parasites and germs. While replacing a dirt floor
with concrete has significant health benefits (e.g. reducing diarrhea by 50% and parasitic
infections by 80%), concrete is unaffordable for many who need it.
EarthEnable addresses this pressing and ubiquitous problem by selling high-quality, earthen
floors that are 80% cheaper than concrete with 90% less embedded energy. Earthen floors
are already prevalent in modern homes in the United States and are composed of natural
materials (gravel, clay, sand, and laterite). EarthEnable trains and hires local masons to
install the floors which are sealed using a proprietary drying oil that makes them waterproof,
strong, and polished. In our first 5 years of operations, EarthEnable has installed over 8,000
floors for over 35,000 individuals and currently employs roughly 500 staff.
