In the India 166 million people are dalits. This group continues to suffer from a great discrimination and still without access to most basic, such as education, health or housing human rights.

Thanks to the housing Vicente Ferrer Foundation (FVF) program, 67.000 families now have a house and a decent life.

Both families and communities are the real protagonists throughout the construction process ranging from the identification of needs to the construction of housing, always with the technical and financial support of the FVF.

All homes have been built following the local tradition with the incorporation of new materials that respect the environment.
