Rebuilding homes with a stronger foundation
Under this reconstruction project, our priority is to rebuild destroyed homes, helping refugees find a decent place to live, providing them with clean water, medical care, and opportunities to make a living.
Project also supports a shelter for disaster affected and homeless girls in Santhome near Chennai where the key goal is to help them graduate from high school and learn a trade.
This component of the project has been particularly successful in 2008.
Thanks to GlobalGiving donors and other funding, project was also able to repair 5 homes and to rebuild 4 homes for victim families in Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
To promote better results overall in 2009 we work closely in partnership with the dedicated Indian Non-proft Charity Jeevana Samridhi (Life in Abundance) very active in Southern India.
In this way, we ensure that each dollar received is properly used and has a positive impact. We are making schedules of tasks, list of services provided and of beneficiaries at village or shelter level, and we monitor construction progress every 3 months in coordination with Jeevana Samridhi.
Many poor families still need help for home rebuilding while staying in good health and earning a living. Donor feedback would be highly appreciated on how they believe we could do a better job.
Thank you to help these families fight poverty and adversity to build hope and peace, and to help us make new progress together on reaching soon project goals.
