House - 49: House of Sasi & Lilly Bai and their family
Sasi & Lilly are the owners of the land on which the new house has been constructed with the financial support provided by the Center. They are living with their only son who is unmarried. While Sasi is working in the local diocese, his son is a driver. The family's repayment capacity is sound. The family had been living in a thatched house when they approached the Center for housing assistance. With the loan sanctioned by the Center they built a house. The new house has raised their social status. Now the entire family feels happy to live in the new house with a better social status. This house was also dedicated on June 30, 2019.
House - 48: House of Baby and her family
Baby is a widow with two daughters and a son. She is living with one daughter and the son. The family didn't have a house of their own. They were not considered for any governmental assistance. Their efforts to get a housing loan from other sources had failed when they approached the Center for help. Baby is a labourer, and so is her son. As the family possess repayment potential, the Center sanctioned them the loan for a new house which was dedicated on June 30, 2019.
House - 47: House of Girly & family
Girly is a grass widow who was living with her two sons and their wives in a house, which didn't have all the windows, good flooring and painting. She approached us for some supplementary assistance to make her house more habitable and safe. They are very happy about our assistance and the present condition of their house, which was dedicated on March 25, 2019.
House - 46: House of Thresiamma & family
Thresiamma is an unmarried woman, so is her own sister. Both of them were living in a house built with the housing assistance of the State Government long ago. But the house became unfit and unsafe to live in. It was under this circumstance that she approached the TFCH for a loan to restrengthen and refurbish her house. The full view of the house can be seen in the inset. She is exceedingly happy to have her house in this revived condition now. The picture shows both the ladies and their niece with her child standing on the threshold of the house. This house was also dedicated on March 25, 2019.
House - 45: House of Kumar G & family
This is the Fuller Home of Kumar & Sreekumari dedicated on February 27, 2019. The family felt that the old house in which they had been living for five years was inadequate with their two children having grown-up. Their existing house needed an addition of one more room. The loan assistance provided by the TFCH enabled the family to expand the house with a sit-out.The couple and their son are posing for a picture snapped on the occasion of the dedication ceremony.
House - 44: House of Asha A & family
Asha and her family had already constructed a house with their savings and other assistance when they approached the TFCH for a loan. But the structure needed doors, windows, flooring and plastering to make it habitable. With the help of the Center they completed the house which was dedicated on February 19, 2019.
This Fuller Home, which was dedicated on November 06, 2018, belongs to Binukumar & family. Binukumar is a mason while his wife a kindergarten teacher. They have two school-going children. Their house had a sheet-roof and the interior was incomplete. Now the whole family is happy being housed in a better and safer decent concrete house.
This Fuller home, dedicated on April 28, 2018, belongs to Anilkumar & Mayamol. They had been living in an inadequate house with a bedroom and kitchen under the asbestos roof. Anilkumar is a mason with two school-going children, one son and the other daughter. The children feel proud of having owned the house.
House - 1: House of Joy and family
Joy, a skilled carpenter, and his family were living in a just two-room asbestos-roofed inadequate house when he approached the TFCH for assistance. It was around the time of the first Millard Fuller Legacy Build. The Center decided to participate in the Build though it had not received any external aid. The members of the Board contributed to the corpus which served as a source to meet about 75% of the estimated cost for the reconstruction of Joy's house. And, this was the first Fuller Home of the TFCH, with the dedication of which we also joined the MFLB 2009.
