The war uprooted many families in the North and the East and destroyed their homes and assets. Many of those who returned to their lands after the war had to start from scratch and livelihood and housing were the biggest needs. Homes not Houses Project was implemented to help returnee families have access to affordable and appropriate housing solutions while also providing them with a livelihood.
While identified individuals are provided with training in eco-friendly brick making to build houses, they are also supported in rebuilding their homes with technical input every step of the way. The families are also given training in land usage and allocation of available resources.
The community is sensitized on equality, inclusion and receives training in financial literacy, disaster resilience, village haphazard mapping and identifying safe locations.
