Summary

This project will help 30 families in Madagascar finally own a decent home. They spend more than 35% of their monthly income on rent or live in homes of rotting wood, compacted mud and thatched roofs. Such homes expose to illness and other dangers, but their new homes with kitchens and sanitary latrines will be permanent structures of bricks, concrete, and high quality metal roofs that will provide healthy homes. Families pay costs forward with no-profit and no-interest to help more families.

Challenge

An estimated 10,000 families live in extremely poor housing conditions with a total lack of sanitation and a high risk of fire, flood and collapse due to the makeshift building materials. In addition, families are paying a high percentage of their income on rent (over 35%), and with a combined family income of less than $400 per month cannot afford to build a house of their own. Loans for such families are either unavailable or at extremely high rates of interest.

Solution

This is a Malagasy-led initiative that will highly mobilize community involvement, which enables them to build 30 new safe, healthy and affordable homes with families for a very low cost. We will prioritize widows, orphans who are in charge of his or her family, and families with at least 4 people. Through the no-profit, no-interest repayments made by the partner families and continued fundraising, our vision is to someday have built homes with more than 1,000 families.

Long-Term Impact

Decent shelter increases health, education, and rates of entrepreneurship while stabilizing families and strengthening communities. Our community-based methodology in particular focuses on strengthening community ties as families work together on each others' homes, repay the funds to help more families, and receive training in areas like health, hygiene, the environment and gender equality.
