In a quest to support low-income families achieve strength, stability and self-reliance, Muthoot Finance Ltd has partnered with housing non-profit organisation ‘Habitat for Humanity India’ under their flagship CSR initiative Aashiyana Housing Project to empower 20 families by helping them build decent homes. The houses are to be built as per the government-approved, highest engineering standards and will consist of a living room, two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and a sanitation unit. All the 20 future homeowners belong to below the poverty line category and 13 of them are widows. They live in kachha houses made of mud walls, tarpaulin sheets and thatched roofs and do not have access to sanitation units.
Muthoot Finance Ltd under their CSR initiative has built 213 houses and handed over the same to the flood-affected people of Kerala in the aftermath of 2018 floods. Now Muthoot Finance is building houses for the poor in the North, East, and West of India. “Under Aashiyana Housing Project, we have built over 200 homes for people who have lost their shelter during the devastating floods in Kerala. Our mission through the initiative is to provide another fair opportunity for these devastated people to lead better lives. At the core of our operations, Muthoot Group always intends to become a catalyst for positive changes in society through our CSR interventions,” said Shri. George M. George – Deputy Managing Director, Muthoot Finance detailing his company’s vision of the project.
Speaking on this occasion, Dr. Rajan Samuel, Managing Director, Habitat for Humanity India said, “One of the key aspects of making the weaker section of the society self-reliant is to provide them with decent homes. This gives them social security, dignity and ensures that they have an asset in their hands. A decent home is a foundation for them to empower themselves and their family.“
