PROJECT BUILD, The Project Build Trust has been building educational buildings in KwaZulu-Natal for 30 years. We have a proud record of having built 5300 classrooms to date. The Urban Foundation started a classroom building division in 1977. When the Trustees of the UF felt that the UF had served its purpose in 1994, Natal School Project was formed as a separate Trust. Since then there is hardly a community in KwaZulu-Natal that has not been touched by our work. We also build Community Centres and Humanitarian Buildings.

To build educational buildings for the learners and educators of KwaZulu-Natal.

Our Mission
To empower independent building contractors whilst creating employment opportunities and passing skills to communities;
To prove to donors that they can share in the success of a good society.

We manage the project from concept to inception and completion to handover. Schools who need buildings, register their needs with us. They must show us that they have permission from the planning department of the Department of Education. Each school must be a partner in their own project by paying a deposit towards the build. PROJECTBUILD through the donor community will source funds.

Builders who are independent smme enterprises are contracted to each project. Members of the community where the project takes place can be employed for the duration of the project by the builders, thus passing skills and income into the community. The builders, many of whom have worked with us for 25 years are assisted by PROJECTBUILD in many ways to sustain their micro enterprise. We offer on going training, cash advances, we assist with the buying of tools.

These contracts are labour only contracts. PROJECTBUILD is responsible for all material. We contract registered plumbers and qualified electricians. If possible we buy material in the community where the project is being developed. We are also totally responsible for the quality of work and every other aspect of the build at each site. Our qualified supervisors visit the sites regularly. For the Community and Humanitarian building, the same model is used.
