Homestay Development

IMG_20200318_061157355_HDR.jpg

Infrastructure is often one of the hardest, yet most important needs to get funding for.  In order to hire well-skilled people, we need proper housing. 

But isn't there existing housing in our area? Unfortunately not. Due to a lack of infrastructure development and service delivery in these rural areas, there are a major shortage on housing in our community. 

And, to add to this, most local homes do not have access to water borne sanitation, running water or electricity.  We’ve realised that we need to our own fund to develop homestay accommodation to house our growing team.

 

We also realised that if we improve local accommodation options, then we can also create business opportunities for local host families.

We have managed to develop two different types of homestays:

1 - Build a completely new house on a local family’s land with whom we have good relations. 

2 - Renovate an already existing hut into a two-room accommodation. This is also on the property of a local family with whom we have good relations.
