Laying foundations for climate resistant communities.

When cyclones strike, homes in Fiji are the first to fall. Mud Bricks are an innovative solution to create resilient, cyclone-proof housing. This project empowers local villages through brick production, creating houses that can weather the devastating effects of climate change.

It takes approximately 8000 bricks to build one house, and it costs about $2NZD for one brick. Every $2 you give will literally build foundations for climate resilient communities in Fiji!

Climate out of control

The Pacific Islands are routinely devastated by climate change.

The Pacific Islands are on the front lines of climate change related weather events. As sea levels continue to rise from the melting of polar ice, low lying islands are at continued risk from flooding, costal erosion and storm surges.

Cyclones have become an unfortunate annual rhythm for the Fiji Islands, with the number and severity increasing every season. The cyclones that make landfall can be absolutely devastating to local communities, particularly to structures like houses.

Compressed earth bricks (“Mud Bricks”) are an excellent, renewable material to build (or rebuild) homes that are prone to weather damage. They also are a great natural insulator, and will generally stay cooler than concrete structures.

Help build vital infrastructure

Currently, the working and site conditions are restricting production because the bricks and machinery are exposed to the elements. Your donation will go towards vital infrastructure to make the production process more effective; secured and weatherproof site offices, maintenance for brick pressing machines, tools, equipment and training.

Crucially, your support will enable the team to scale up – being able to pay wages for builders and labourers will accelerate productivity and create jobs and opportunities for many locals looking for work.


Donations towards the Mud Brick Project will go towards making the process of creating and building with bricks. This includes better working and site conditions, salaries and wages for local labourers and for production of bricks - it costs approximately $2NZD to create one brick.
Yes! Because each of the Lenten Appeal projects are run by AWA (our aid and development branch), they are eligible for tax credits. Because our system for AWA donations is not fully operational, you will receive a donation receipt from Anglican Missions. We will manually issue a tax receipt for your donation within a week to your designated email address.
90 percent of your donation goes directly towards the project. We retain 10 percent of funds for operational costs, and only for aid and development projects run by AWA - our aid and development branch.

No donated funds for AWA projects are used for religious or evangelical purposes. We're committed to total transparency around the use of donated funds.
We will keep you updated about the outcomes of the projects through our newsletter and articles on the website. Make sure you sign up for our newsletter to keep up to date with our projects.

Also feel free to contact us for specific questions regarding the 2023 Lenten Appeal.
