|Extreme Village Makeover Project|
EAI is already working in Cambodia, partnering with members of the community to build new houses quickly; we call this Rapid Appropriate Development. Recently, working in partnership with LIFE Outreach International, we built 100 homes near the border of Vietnam in a year's time.
Struck by the overwhelming need we see in the villages, we decided to make use of what we've learned, and do something different. We put our heads together and came up with the Village Makeover Project! We'd like to invite you to partner with us, not just to change an individual or a families' life, but to make a difference for a whole village!
Working in this way, we can build each house for around $1000. It's amazing that the future of a whole village can be significantly changed through hard work, partnership, and $20,000.
You Can Help
It is a real privilege to be able to build in partnership with hurting families a permanent home that will keep them safe from danger and the elements. If you sponsor a home we will place a plaque on it saying that it was sponsored in partnership with you. We will give you the GPS location of the house and send you photos of the family building and living in their new home.
If you would like to help empower hurting people throughout the world by partnering with them to build a permanent home then please let us know by contacting us as firstname.lastname@example.org. Or simply click on the donate button to sponsor a home today!
And next time you see someone on tv getting an extreme makeover to their house or place of business, think of the people in Cambodia and the Village Makeover Project!
* The MAX building system utilizes a specially formulated lightweight concrete panel. Panels are slid on top of each other until the wall has reached the proper height. Windows are cut out of the panels like sawing wood. The lightweight panels are ideal for earthquake-prone areas, and cut down on construction time. These panels are light -- two people can easily pick one up. Once the foundation and grooved pillars are set, with the help of a community, you can build a home in two days! This creates a stage for empowerment. The Max building system is cheaper than brick or wood and involves the local community in the construction the process..
