Home > Shelter and Infrastructure
When natural disasters destroy housing or conflict forces families to flee their homes, HOPE Sri Lanka provides for temporary and permanent shelter. HOPE Sri Lanka also contributes to local infrastructure by building schools, irrigation canals, and community centers in impoverished communities. HOPE Sri Lanka supports training for local residents so that they can participate in the construction process, creating livelihood opportunities for community members. Complementary programs help make homes safer and more comfortable by promoting products like high-efficiency cook stoves, which decrease indoor air pollution and reduce the need to gather fuel.
