House for a homeless family is under construction!

Sustainable Villages Foundation builds a model house for a homeless family in Rugarama village.

A homeless family with many children is getting a house made of adobe. The Catholic Church has provided the land. It is contractually guaranteed that if the family moves out, the house will be made available again to a family without shelter.

The house consists of a residential building and a courtyard building with kitchen and toilet. An Ecosan toilet will be installed. This is a compost toilet, which is increasingly used in the Bugesera District.

The house should be completed in September so that the family can move in.
