Imagine you had no house, no place you could call "home", and you lived with a dream that the next big move up in life for your family was to a mud house of your own - an upgrade from the slums, straw hut or plastic ground-sheet shelter you've inhabited for the last decade.

Every human being needs a place to live. Without the safety of a home, poverty and its affects damage all aspects of a family and community’s life and their future prosperity.

To help build the lives of those in poverty and re-build those affected by disaster, MAA builds emergency shelters and permanent houses for those in needs in the short term and long term.
