We exist to provide sustainable housing for at-risk refugees. Currently we are working to build homes for refugees seeking asylum in Uganda at the Kyaka II refugee camp. We do this through partnering with individual donors, churches and clubs, community organizations, and businesses.
Today, 1 in 6 refugees in Uganda live without a safe, adequate home. This means the most vulnerable refugees - children, single mothers, the elderly and the disabled - are living in unsafe and unsustainable housing after fleeing their war-torn countries.
The Carpenter Project hires skilled refugees to build secure, quality homes using local materials. These sustainable homes serve as a sanctuary for refugees seeking shelter and safety throughout generations. With the stability and safety of a home, refugees are able to get back on their feet and become self sufficient once again. Once refugees have a safe shelter, they are equipped and accountable to work and build businesses, send their children to school, and become leaders in their communities.
After building six homes in 2019, the Carpenter Project invites you to build 12 homes in 2020 for some of the most vulnerable refugees in Africa. You, your family, small group, social club, or business can forever change the lives of people living in extreme poverty and volatile situations by providing a safe, sustainable, and secure home for their families.
Let’s build life together, today.
