A new and improved architectural model creates houses that are more durable and also stay cooler.
When we first started partnering with Sahaya Vietnam in 2013, we sponsored standard houses like the one on the left, which cost $1000 to build. Of course this was a major improvement for the impoverished families who used to live in makeshift shelters.
In 2015 Sahaya developed a new model for building even better houses. They will be made of brick, which is sturdy enough to last at least 40 years. The brick will keep the family cooler during the summer. This new model costs $2200.
Brick Houses in Construction Progress
As part of our commitment to transparency, we're giving you a peek at how the houses are built each step of the way.
To continue the tradition of welcoming the families to their new homes, each family will still receive large jugs of clean drinking water; rice, oil, and cooking supplies; and beds and bedding.
Please join us to help more families enjoy these new brick homes.
