Hand to Hand Village
Earlier this year Hand to Hand applied for a grant from the Methodist Endowment Fund in the USA with the vision of building low cost housing for the poor and moving them into safer and cleaner communities. The plan involves purchasing 1 rai of land (1600 square meters)and building simple housing units in 5 different phases. The cost of phase 1 of the project is as follows:
Purchase of Land
Installation of Services Construction of 8 housing units Architects Fees Contingencies/Other expenses
US$100,000 US$ 35,000
US$100,000 US$ 2,000
The Methodist Endowment Fund has pledged $100 000 and these funds will be released when we have sufficient funds to complete the first phase of the project. At present we have an addition $65 000 making a total of $165, 000. If we are unable to secure the rest of the money by the 1st of October, the funds will be reallocated to another organisation.
Please be in prayer with us as we seek our land and construction companies. The picture below is a piece of land just over 1 rai with a very old building that could be turned into a community centre in phase 2. The government has given approval for us to build the project in this space; however lack the funds to purchase it.
Anyone in the Pattaya are that has land or knows someone who has land for sale, please contact us.
