Vulnerable people sometimes find themselves in a position where their traditional mud house is in a state of collapse. This may apply to someone who can't work and who has no family members supporting them and therefore has no means to repair their house. Open Way constructs simple houses for people who find themselves in this situation.
We have constructed 23 houses in the last 12 months.

There is quite high rainfall in the highlands of Ethiopia, and conditions are not easy. Shelter is obviously fundamental to health and well-being.
A simple 4 m x 5 m metal roofed house makes all the difference
We construct simple, secure and weather-proof houses.
They are inexpensive to build but are life transforming.
Efe is a seriously disabled subsistence farmer
Despite his disability, he grows corn and other crops on his plot. We provided Efe and his family with a new house.
