Owners of a number of mud houses in a village have joined hands in a conservation project for the purpose of promoting the traditional culture.
The program consists of part funding of conservation costs and it is accompanied by an observation program, in which physical measurements are carried out. The amount of support is disbursed at the end of the conservation work.
Since year 2000, the village has already been participating in a project called "Preservation of Cultural Heritage", in which SPARC has been giving away prizes for:
- the best mud-house,
- the best detail and
- the best brick-work.
SPARC decided last year to initiate an annual conservation program for selected objects as a reminder for the advantages of mud-construction and implementation for the public good.
