YEN.com.gh gathered that the plastic-bottled house has a living room area, a kitchen, 2 bathrooms, study area, and so forth.
The lady who started her charitable deeds at the age of 19 said before constructing the house for the kids, she met them in a pitiable state back in 2015.
“When we visited the orphanage in 2015, the children were living in a sorry state, the house was built with clay and makuti and the boys were sleeping in the kitchen. We saw it wasn’t the right way to live especially for orphans.”
Nigerian man builds house with 14,800 plastic bottles
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that a Nigerian man had built a house with 14,800 plastic bottles.
YEN.com.gh gathers that the engineer said the house was built by his organisation to encourage recycling of waste materials, create jobs and ensure a safer environment in Nigeria.
Explaining the process of building the house, Ahmed said workers filled the plastic bottles with sand and linked them at the neck by an intricate network of strings.
He said the building is the first of its kind in sub-Saharan Africa, adding that it is cheaper to build because the building materials are available on the streets and in trash dump centres.
