The Rebuilding Alliance Team is writing to notify everyone that we are renaming this project to call it “Rebuilding to Remain.” In addition to down payments, we are now including two other components, mortgage loans and worldwide outreach. All three are required to build and safeguard Homes with Dignity.
We found a way to fund construction of affordable, eco-friendly homes when banks do not provide financing by both spreading-out + reducing the risk of demolition: many donors, many advocates. Total construction cost is $33,000/home for a 3 bedroom 119sq.m. home. Your donation provides a $5,000 down payment, a $15,000 mortgage loan, and $4000 to coordinate worldwide outreach to assure the village their right to issue building permits. Please note, Al Aqaba Villager's Cooperative Assembly is matching your contribution to $13,000/home. If home is demolished, the remaining mortgage loan is forgiven.
Please mark your calendar for October 19th, the Global Giving Matching Grant day, and join us with your contribution big or small! GlobalGiving.org will provide a 30% match that day for each unique donation up to $1000, and they offer an additional grant to the project with the most donations and also the project with the most donors!
