Build a House


Built to last

When a family has no house, life is always dangerous.

Harsh weather can cause deadly disease. Hygiene is difficult. Children never feel safe.

That’s why this Gift of Grace lets you get your hands dirty to help a family build a home.

You start by learning how to make mud bricks – and making thousands! Then the family are trained in how to lay the bricks and construct the walls. The roof is corrugated iron, and windows have wooden frames. The family you help lives in Burundi, one of the five poorest countries in the world.

Your kindness with a house built to last means a family can finally have a home.
