24 Houses Completed under the shire project



BOSCO Reach Out is implementing a housing project for the rural and economically disadvantaged families in Assam that have no decent houses to dwell in. The project is funded by Don Bosco Mission, Turin, Italy. The funds have been generated from the generosity of benefactors who are themselves average—income earners who want to provide small but secure houses to some of the very poor families spread across Assam. These houses are properly ventilated and ”pucca” and with a tin roof. Attached toilets and proper drainage make these hygienic homes. The foundation for the first cluster of houses was laid in Doomni by Fr. Thomas Kunnappillil, SDB, Director of Bosco Reach Out, on February 12, 2014. We have so far completed 28 such houses and 32 more are under construction. The joy of families that have moved into their new houses is unbounded. We are deeply indebted to Don Bosco Mission, Turin and to the benefactors who have supported us to provide homes to the homeless.
