SEVAI Shelter is not a hand-out but a “hand-up” program. In the village building programme, we select the poor, small and remote villages which are interested in development in all aspects with the help of SEVAI. House construction costs skyrocketed making building construction almost unaffordable to the masses. The energy crisis followed adding to the problem. During later half of 20th Century, there was also greater awareness about the environmental damage due to material manufacturing processes, construction for the homeless and those affected by catastrophe like cyclone, floods since 1976. SEVAI has trained over 600 masons over the years. SEVAI has the capacity of mobilizing the areas of masonry, carpentry, barbendry, house wiring, plumbers and building multi mechanics. The shelter delivery system works through two Building Material Services Banks. The two main products building

The house takes into environmentally unsound SEVAI has been working in the field of house 500 construction skilled workers a day for masonry in material production centres, producing material cost-efficient and could be produced locally. Two crucial poorest. Firstly, a will be held together communities to design with the beneficiaries step by step screening introduced. This all damaged houses in cross-checking with programmes and to the village committees for a final design of the core consideration speed of ornamentally houses beneficiaries, to offer appropriate solutions under the community/NGO-based approach able to respond quicker, it was also more targeted and offered less costly solutions.Govin
