One in two Nepali lives in substandard housing.
We’re on a mission to change that.
We have been strategically partnering with the government in Nepal to unlock multiple government housing funds for the poor, marginalized as well as disaster-affected populations.
We partner with local NGOs in Nepal to strengthen the housing microfinance sector and significantly increase access to housing loans to low-income families in rural communities underserved by the existing financial market.
PROTECTING WOMEN'S LAND RIGHTS
People in rural areas are often not aware of newly granted property rights. To ensure women’s inheritance rights are protected, all houses built by us include the joint title of both males and females.
Our projects always include vocational training with an emphasis on increasing knowledge and capacity of the communities served in building decent and disaster-resilient houses.
We encourage families to adopt disaster-resilient, environmentally sustainable building materials and technology featured on the Nepal government’s list as being suitable for earthquake and flood-prone areas in the country.
We provide training to youth and empower them to implement an action plan of their own design to be the change leaders for safe shelter.
