Malpasso in Rwanda (www.malpassoinrwanda.co.uk) is a project that has been planned to help the widows and orphans of Nyamata, Rwanda who require proper housing and is the inspiration of Steve and Angy Clarke whose vision is to build a duplex house which will provide homes for 8 people.
The project is planned for July 2013 and we now have around 30 ordinary people who are joining the project to help build the house and dependent on the amount of money raised to at least lay the foundations of between another three to seven houses (this is the current extent of the project).
The basis of the house build is that when we arrive the foundations will have been put in place (funded by the project) and during the 8 days on site we will build the walls, roof and install all of the wiring and plumbing ready to hook up to the mains as and when they are available.
We are really pleased to welcomes Martin Roberts of ‘Homes Under the Hammer’ fame as our special guest who will enhance the project with his building knowledge and will also be documenting the build through his production company. We are also really pleased that Martin will be celebrating his 50 on site with us which will be a great way to celebrate a birthday!
As part of my inspiration and contribution to the project I am keen for family, friends, contacts and wider to be able to contribute to this amazing project in a small way and to have a memento to say that they have helped make a difference.
The Buy a Brick project is where you can buy a brick for £10.00 which can be split many ways, so you can with your friends donate as little or as much as you like.
