Thousands of poor people in rural areas are still living straw huts without electricity, water or sanitation, exposed to the elements, dangerous animals and an unhealthy environment. Houses do not only protect people, and sanitary facilities do not only improve their hygiene patterns and prevent diseases; they also provide them with a sense of pride and dignity.
ASSIST promotes the participation and ownership of people in housing and sanitation projects by encouraging communities to apply for Government support and to let them take the lead in the planning and construction of their own houses. ASSIST provides matching funding, material and assistance.
