These are typical homes in the mountains of Malawi.

CRI’s Green Door Project

Across Africa families that live in deep poverty, live in huts or shacks like you see above. They battle seasonal downpours, mud floors, collapsing roofs, and cracks in infrastructure. Rains ruin their belongings. Bacteria growth and viruses leave them ill. Insect bites lead to malaria and other diseases. Without lockable doors, strangers enter with ease.

Through our Green Door Housing program, we do what shacks cannot—provide shelters to families that will last a lifetime. We build homes with cement blocks, wood trusses, and tin roofs for sturdiness. Our local committee chooses home recipients, often orphans and widows.  The new home owners help with construction when possible.

Our 15th Anniversary race goal is 30 homes (18,000 blocks)!
