Villa Linda and Millard Fuller
This project is located just south of San Luis Talpa, about 15 minutes from the international airport. The project is designed to create a complete 60-home community with water infrastructure and electricity. Homes from the Heart began this project with the Fuller Center for Housing in August, 2008. In November, the Fuller Center hosted a 5-day, 16-house blitz build that got the project moving and created excitement.
Please check out all of our photos from San Luis Talpa.
We are now nearing the half way mark as we will soon have 32 houses completed on the property. Many families are already moved in but many more are eager for their future home to be complete. Water services a toilet, shower, and sink in each home from an underground network of pipes. After a full year of struggling, we finally got the lights turned on; the electricity is flowing.
You can view the site plan for the entire project.
We currently have 10 homes under various stages of construction. The rate of home building is difficult to predict and is greatly dependent on available funds and labor. Among many benefits, external work teams typically offer a renewal of energy and excitement for the project as well as new hope for the future. All teams are encouraged to discover ways they can use their skills in the fight against poverty.
