Are we builders or teachers
At first sight, it might seem that the program of self-help construction of family houses is mainly a development project and its main focus is construction. Of course, that’s not truth, our program is primarily social work in housing with people from excluded communities. However, if we want to solve housing, we must also tackle other areas of the client’s life, such as education or employment. Our program is based on intensive social work, we provide financial and employment counseling for families. We teach clients to plan and how to achieve their goal step by step. In our team we have social workers, construction engineers, masons and experts from the banking sector. All of them do one thing in common – THEY ARE TEACHING. Learning has many forms, from sharing information to practical training and the gaining of new skills. In the end result of our efforts is not primarily a built house, but a man equipped with the necessary skills to live.
