House Construction

Over the years the Shack Dwellers have built over 7,000 brick houses for low-income and poor people in informal settlements. Each house built by the Shack Dwellers has its own toilet, electricity, and water connection. Assuming 4 or more people live in such a house built by SDFN/NHAG: this means that more than 30,000 people have moved into a life with dignity and hope - through their own commitment and persistence. The active participation of SDFN members in the management and production of the houses results in much cheaper units than commercial house construction for low-income families. The price for a SDFN house is N$ 40,000.
