The house renovation project was the first project RDL-USA got involved with extensively. We were provided pictures of the house as it stood and given the short comings of the house. This house is were nine children slept, ate, and studied.

We discovered that during the raining season the roof leaked, the side structures were deficient and allowed air which contributed to the harsh living conditions.

RDL-USA decided to prepare a budget to knock down the walls and rebuild with “compostato” and replace the roof. In addition to the external conditions of the house we felt the need to replace the beds and accessories.

During 2008 we put together a party in Ann Arbor, MI and Grand Rapids MI which both raised $302 and $473 dollars respectively.

The budget for the proposed repair and improvements required $842 dollars or $10,946 Ethiopian Birr. We were able to complete the repairs which the children appreciated. One of our members Yoseph Kidane was present as the project was completed.
