Construction season at HabitatPont resource center

2018. July 31.

The families work shoulder to shoulder, helping one another to do small repairs on their homes, which is rewarded by further discount from the prices of materials. The participants also learn financial, decision making and team work skills.

The families live in deep poverty. In this communities repairs are not an esthetic question, but quality problems are often life threatening or cause health risks.
Currently we work in three locations: Bag, Mátraverebély and Bátonyterenye (two neighboring villages) and Ág. More and more families start to repair their homes: they build a new bathroom, repair the roof and chimney of their house, renovate the kitchen. We organized a mud plastering workshop to teach families how they can reinforce and insulate their adobe houses.

Our work would not be possible with the help of local NGOs who have worked with the communities before. We partner with Bagázs in Bag; Köz-Tér-Háló in Ág; and Nógrád County Gipsy Spokesmen in Bátonyterenye.
