Challenge

Quang Nam Province, is the one of the most impoverished areas in Vietnam, where many families living in rural areas have homes made of flimsy materials (such as palm leaf, branches, plastic sheets, bamboo and iron sheets) that barely protect the inhabitants from the elements in good conditions. These homes lack basic necessities in sewage, plumbing, sturdy walls and roofing. With annual flooding and typhoons that make matters worse, families undoubtedly struggle to avoid illness and death.

Solution

This project aims to fully construct one new home for a family in need located in a rural village of Central Vietnam. We will demolish their existing hut of palm leaves and bamboo and build a new home made of steel, cement and brick. With a true iron roof and proper doors and windows, this will keep harsh outside elements out and animals and mosquitoes at bay. For a clean and healthy environment, we will build proper wash rooms and a kitchen to give this family an opportunity to flourish.

Long-Term Impact

Parents and children will be able to have productive work and school days with a suitable place to come home that provides proper washing, cooking and living. Along with a prosperous and encouraging environment, this will lessen the devastating impact when natural disasters, illness or extreme outside elements become out of control. Not only will this directly benefit the family in need but to have another family thrive, the positive effects will ripple through the community.
