Sand and Cement Volcanos, Rock and a Crater of Sorts make Concrete

Below is an image shared by Mike Hoy. It demonstrates how a concrete mixer works in a poor country. These workers are probably donating their strong backs to a good cause and we commend them for the service. They seem to be trying to measure the material (maybe not the water) and use best practices for on-the-ground concrete mixing.

The question is: How can we help them make better concrete?

CementTrust has focused most of our story on the poor quality of concrete in Haiti, but other countries suffer with the same issues. The least developed countries all have need of a better concrete supply chain.
