Brick Seva

For weeks now, we have been laying foundations and pouring the cement columns for house after house. It is critical work as the columns we build, firmly anchored and with extra reinforcement, will make an “Amma House” one of the safest in the valley.

The walls go up so quickly

Today we started brickwork and it put everyone in a great mood to see our first house take shape. Our local workers have much experience laying brick and are fast and efficient. We all chipped in for “brick seva”, including Shanti Devi and her son, the family who will receive this first house.
