The Impact of Safe Housing
We believe that healthy and safe housing changes lives. Take Radhika, a mother of three from Thuraiyur in the Tamil Nadu state of India. She is a laborer who barely earns enough to support her family and their expenses.
Radhika’s family was living in a thatched hut. The home was unable to withstand bad weather, especially during monsoon season. After each storm, they had to repair the walls and roof of the hut. These conditions made it difficult for her children to study. And because she could barely afford to make ends meet, Radhika couldn’t make the necessary improvements to her home.
With the money she received from Eave, Radhika was able to upgrade her home with better, stronger materials like cement. She added new floors, ceilings, walls, lights, and even a new toilet. Her family is now happier, healthier and safer.
Eave hopes to help as many families like Radhika’s as possible.
