In the poorest parts of India, a well-built home is transformational. We help families build homes that are monsoon-proof so they are not forced to rebuild them each year. Our traditional houses use indigenous techniques to keep homes cool and keep out dangerous snakes and scorpions.
When we can, we also work to ensure that the home is registered to women so they have the ability to protect themselves and their children.
We recently made it possible for Kullayamma, a widow and mother of three children, to move into her new home. She had lived with her children in a palm-thatched home that offered no natural light, and was exposed to termites, scorpions, and snakes. After acquiring the land and materials for her new home, she was able enroll her children back into school — and even start a micro-business in her new home.
This is how one donation can #GiveAllYear, for years to come. Donate a home and we’ll keep you informed with photos and letters from the family who are directly benefiting from your generosity.
