Team Hive Earth
Team Hive is a construction firm based in Accra, Ghana. Hive Earth is the specialist when it comes to earth constructions in Ghana, and its co-founders, Kwame Deheer and Joelle Eyeson, are passionate promoters of earth as a construction material. In the past few years Hive Earth has carried out several projects in an around Accra that partly or entirely where made with earth. We can doubtlessly say they are now an authority within their field and we are very happy to partner up with them.

All books are distributed to schools and communities across the country. In 2018, the #BookDropGhana campaign generated over 400 book donations in under four weeks.
