Model Homes

Construction of Model Homes in Earthquake Areas
While everybody including the Government was concerned with provision of tents to the affectees, FALAH FOUNDATION, with financial help from OCEA, went into construction of permanent houses for the distraught families, commencing November 2005.
Qualified engineers have especially designed FALAH Earthquake resistant houses, keeping in mind the local environment; using locally available materials. The local community is used to constructing such houses even prior to the earthquake. These houses have been built on land belonging to the affectees, free of cost.
Falah Foundation introduced the concept of complete permanent homes per household , covering an area of 400 sq.ft.having wooden structural frame and 3 ft high stonewall wedged with wood is built using timber and rocks. The Homes Comprises of:

2 x BEDROOMS (10’ x 12’)
