Rooftops Canada/Abri International

This holiday season you can help a family in need in Africa by giving to Rooftops Canada / Abri International (RC-AI): Kenya Loans to Homes project. The Loans to Homes Project provides small loans, technical and organizational support to buy land and build small two-room core houses with basic water and sanitation services. As families pay off their loans, the funds are recycled to help more families build core housing.  These starter homes provide safety and security from the dangers of living in slums, especially for children. Homes are designed to be extended over time according to each family’s needs and resources. 

Our goal is to raise $60,000 to guarantee a $600,000 loan to our partner NACHU from a Kenyan bank. With help from Rooftops Canada, NACHU will manage and lend these funds to families ready to extend their houses. 

It costs about $1,000 to add a small room to a core house, but it only takes a $100 donation from you to secure and access a loan of this size. A $200 donation will build two rooms. After rooms are completed and the loans repaid, the funds will be reinvested in the program. Philanthropy and sound lending practices are integrated to help families realize their housing dreams. 

400 families in Kenya are now waiting for new loans to complete their homes – room by room. Please support one of our dedicated fundraising volunteers or simply make a generous donation today.

Thank you for your support.
