The picture above is the dedication of a Green Door home in Mozambique. Friends, family and community leaders are invited to witness the signing of the deed and then celebrate with food, drinks, singing, dancing and prayer. 

Children’s Relief International’s (CRI) Green Door Project provides cement block homes for some of the countless widows, orphans, sick, and disabled found in difficult places around the world. 

CRI’s strategy is to partner with local leaders who share our desire to share God’s love in both word and deed. Together we plan and develop programs that can make lasting change. There are few things that provide lasting change more than the gift of a home.

Key benefits of a Green Door Home:

Raised Concrete Foundation

Families no longer have to stand to sleep during rainy nights. A raised concrete foundation keeps rain from getting into the home and provides a solid, clean floor free from dirt, bugs, and illness.

Cement Block Walls

When a mud hut is built, the dirt from termite mounds is used to plaster the walls. These walls require frequent maintenance and collapse under heavy rain. The walls of a Green Door Home withstand the elements, providing long-term protection and safety.

Metal Roofing

The roof of a typical mud home is constructed from thatch and plastic. These roofs leak, harbor bugs, hold moisture and require constant maintenance. A Green Door Home has a zinc roof that lasts for many years, sheds water and keeps the interior of the home nice and dry.

Screened Windows

Screened windows provide circulation while keeping mosquitos outside of the home. These windows are also fortified with iron bars to keep the family safe from thieves looking to steal the few possessions they own.

Locking Doors

All homes are built with our signature “Green Door.” These hardwood doors are treated to protect them from termite decay. The lock provides safety and peace of mind so owners can rest well knowing they are secure.

Ownership for Generations

When a home is dedicated, the owner signs a deed to their home and are trained how to maintain it. Owners are able to rest well knowing that when they are gone their home will be passed on to a family member they choose.
