Impact Report on EarthEnable’s Earthen Flooring

Program activities
EarthEnable replaces dirt floors in Rwandan and Ugandan homes with earthen floors that are waterproof, made of natural materials, and 70% cheaper than concrete. It also hires and trains unemployed/underemployed community members in masonry and sales.



$500 replaces a family's dirt floor with a sanitary floor.


EarthEnable collected data on outcomes of participants after the program. To estimate the change that was attributable to the program, EarthEnable made an educated guess as to how participants would have fared without the program.

Data source
EarthEnable tracks the number of earthen floors it installs each year.

Attribution method
Based on Demographic and Health Survey data, 1% of households in rural Rwanda and Uganda switch from dirt floors to sanitary floors each year, so EarthEnable assumes that without its help, 1% of 771 families served would have gotten sanitary floors.

This report was created by EarthEnable with self‐reported data using ImpactMatters' impact reporting platform. This report covers January 2017 to January 2018.
