Access to shelter should and indeed is a basic human right. The housing deficit in Uganda continues to widen despite the numerous property developers as the population continues to grow.
With among other partners; The property show, Rex Interios and Construction we intend to have more dilapidated homes rehabilitated, repaired or improved and attract more investment for affordable quality housing.
Over two-thirds of Ugandans live in substandard housing and Abra alongside our partners are set to alter this trend.
The reality is clear – the lack of affordable quality housing compromises people’s health and development opportunities which perpetuates the poverty cycle in Uganda.
We encourage more partners to join us as we build more homes for vulnerable groups and make more micro-loans are available to the poorest. Together we will make Uganda a place where everyone has a decent place to live.
We also intend to support orphans and their caregivers through the construction of homes with ventilated improved pit latrines, bathing shelters and a rainwater harvesting system. Families are provided with skills training including knowledge of HIV/AIDS, sexual and reproductive health, succession planning, inheritance rights, sanitation and hygiene, malaria prevention.
We respond to God’ call to love and serve the poor. We seek to emulate the Good Samaritan, whose compassion crossed ethnic groups and religions. We serve all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.
