Our Technology - “Do-nou”
dono

Do-nou” is a Japanese word that means wrapping soil in a gunny bag. (Size: Do-nou bag- 45cm x 60cm).

Why Do-nou technology?

  • Uses locally available materials (Do-nou bags; can use bags left, material put inside the bag; sand, Murram (gravel)
  • Manual labour based technology (labour intensive) hence creates employment without both compromising the quality and increasing the cost.
  • Easily adopted and applied by the community hence sustainable.
  • With regular maintenance the road section maintained using Do-nou technology is durable. It is therefore preferable to maintain it after every rain season.
