Nivas, a local Denver nonprofit, is focused on using the construction of safe healthy housing as a tool to empower families living in poverty. Nivas has been working in Nepal helping families rebuild their homes and lives after two devastating earthquakes. To date they have reconstructed homes for over 300 people and helped over 2,000 people build healthy sanitation for their homes.
At RSI, we're big believers in karma and the golden rule in our daily lives. That's why we're teaming up with NIVAS to give back by building homes for families in need. We’ve signed up to build a home for $5,000! This sponsor’s a family not only to build a new home with earthquake resistant techniques but to receive education on a multitude of critical topics and advocacy on their behalf toward social and legal matters.
And now we’d like to inspire our colleagues, partners, and friends to come together to do the same! The goal is to raise another $5,000 so that two families will have an entirely new lease on life!
The hopeful future homeowners are single moms and women with disabilities living without homes in rural Nepal. They have met with adversity beyond imagination, but RSI hopes to come together with their friends to change the outlook going forward.
ENDS: August 10th!
