Housing Project


Countless families live in simple thatched huts or dilapidated constructions that are not capable of sheltering them from the area’s extreme weather conditions or indigenous wildlife. They typically take refuge in grass and stick huts, and sometimes even on borrowed land. With no door for privacy, roofs that leak during the monsoon rains, and with fragile structures that are commonly destroyed by cyclones, life’s challenges for these disadvantaged adults and children are multiplied manifold. Seeing the plight of the nearly-homeless people in India, the Karunaseva Trust was impelled to help create Free Sustainable Housing.
