Who We AreAt Earth Enable, we believe that our clients deserve our very best, that morning high-fivesare the best way to start the day, and that the best ideas can 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 clean, dust-free floor means more than living in a healthy home. It means pride and dignity in the place where our customers most treasure: their homes. Being a part of our team means more than building floors: it means building an organization and building a better future for rural families.

What We Do Earth Enable 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 un affordable for many who need it.

Earth Enable addresses this pressing and ubiquitous problem by selling high-quality,earthen floors that are 80% cheaper than concrete with 90% less embodied energy.Earthen floors are already prevalent in modern homes in the United States and are composed of natural materials (gravel, clay, sand, and laterite). Earth Enable 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 3 years of operations,Earth Enable has installed over 400,000 square feet of flooring and employed over 100Rwandese staff (and generated jobs and income for an additional 100 masons).
