THE STORY:

In Rimbi village located in Zimbabwe, Africa the struggle to obtain sustainable housing plunges thousands of families into a vicious circle of poverty. Houses in Rimbi village are built with mud and thatch (grass) roofs. This design creates inhabitable living condition resulting in leaky roofs and breeding grounds for malaria. These challenges further aggravate the vulnerabilities of already deprived living conditions. Given the circumstances the Tekeshe Foundation has launched a sustainable affordable housing initiative. The beneficiaries of this initiative are underprivileged families. The foundation is looking forward to completing 10 houses per year to develop Rimbi village.

To date the foundation has completed its first model housing prototype for a single grandmother and her four grandchildren. During the summertime this family suffered from a house fire leaving them homeless for several months. This initiative has allowed for this family to receive a house. With your help we can transform the lives of many families in this rural area.
