Three years ago, a group of houses in the village of Siror, near Uttarkashi, began to slide into the Ganges.


Families were given temporary shelters like the blue structure below, on the left. However, they were not scheduled for any further assistance to build better homes. Many would be living in these tin sheds for years to come.


In June of this year, MAM began construction of fourteen permanent homes on stable farmland around this village.

Although the sites had no road access, after just five months the homes are within days of completion. Families are eager to move in, especially at this house which already has a garden, fence, and hay storage on the roof.
