Description: 

Developping the community of San Miguel Milpas Altas through adequate and safe housing for 40 families was the goal of the project. Minimum housing has been desig- ned as a means of family development, improvement and integration into the society. The minimum housing consisted of a quarter block, made of sheet roof and metal structure, together with a toilet. It also has adequate facilities for electricity, water

and drainage. Together with Fundación Familias de Esperanza, the NGO will provide a follow-up of 4 years after having built the houses. During this time, families will work with programs of education, health, hygiene, housing maintenance, family motiva- tion, savings, self-esteem, among other important issues for families who, during

the implementation, have contributed as unskilled workers together with providing materials for the project.
