HUYE – Six vulnerable families in Kinazi Sector, Huye District, have received decent houses, courtesy of a grassroots organisation in the Southern Province.
All the beneficiaries previously lived in grass-thatched houses.
“I will use this opportunity as a stepping stone to improve my family’s social welfare,” observed Beatrice Ayingenye, one of the beneficiaries.
The Association for the Promotion of Twinning and Friendship between People, (APROJUMAP) constructed the houses in line with the government’s campaign to eradicate thatched houses, officials said.
The association’s head, Eugene Niyigena, said the houses, valued at least Rwf 3 million each, were among more than 200 housing units the group has handed over to disadvantaged households since June.
The association operates in Huye, Nyamagabe and Kamonyi districts.
