Housing

Rhoda is a subsistence farmer living in Mkwera village and is caretaker of her youngest child and four orphans. The six of them lived in a 8 x 8 grass hut and were the recipient of a house in 2015 through Habitat for Humanity's Global Village Project.  We changed her life, and forever she changed ours. Below is a story in pictures of Rhoda and her new home.
