£1300 builds a single room house with pila (a four inch thick, concrete basin with a scrub board, used for washing and storing water), for a family desperately in need using local labour and materials.
In Honduras, rent, even for a single room, is incredibly expensive. The financial strain often requires a decision between paying rent or eating. A home of their own provides much needed security for a family and allows them, for the first time, to start saving money for their children needs.
CH Trust has earned a good reputation over the years for building houses for the neediest in Honduras. Local government is prepared to give small plots of land, often up on the side of a mountain, to the mother of a family. CH Trust will not build there until the title to the land has been secured. The land title and house is registered in the mother's name, so that she has security for herself and her family.
