Building a $750 home for a burundian widow impacts her family for a lifetime
A Basic Need
A home provides shelter, safety and stability for a widow and her family. It's a launching point to rebuilding her life. A home restores a widow's dignity in her community, and her hope for the future.
We hire local builders, who use local materials to benefit the entire community. The widow chooses the location and design of her home to best serve her family.
“I came to believe that the world had no place for widows. I was told not even heaven had a place for widows. All but one of my children died, and I was homeless. But through Sister Connection, God sent me help. God bless you! Thank you to my sponsors. With their help my child and I have clothes, we eat well, and we have what we need.” -Clotilde
Having a safe and solid home provides widows and their families with stability and dignity. With each project, the widow hires the workers and oversees the project--a process that raises her status in the community.
Our goal is to build 125-150 homes per year. For just $750 you can build an entire home!
