Water Bottle Houses

In Mauritania, leprosy quickly leads to poverty. These families live without a roof over their heads, with no protection from the blazing sun, blowing dust, or monsoon rains. Your gift will turn plastic bottles into homes for families who have no other options.

Water Bottles Provide New Homes

For people who can only afford to live in a makeshift “shack,” the opportunity to own a solid, well-built house is life changing. They no longer face the dilemma of losing their home if they cannot pay the rent. They have also discovered a newfound status in their community, because their homes have smooth painted walls and are wired for electricity. There is even a separate latrine.

The structures are all made from sand-filled water bottles. However, no one would know, because the bottles are covered in cement and look like the usual cement block houses in the neighborhood. Your support can provide the construction supplies and train workers to build permanent homes for families in poor communities…and improve the environment at the same time.
