For my forthcoming birthday, I am hoping that, rather than presents, my friends and family will help me raise enough to build a simple village house for two homeless families in rural South India. Many of the families that RTU supports in rural villages live in coconut-thatched houses on bare earth which are prone to vermin and easily damaged in monsoon rains, like the one shown in the photo above. The houses RTU builds, although small by our standards, give people a safe, secure home in which to raise their family. A solid, functional home can transform the life of a family living in rural poverty in South India.

Please help and give what you can!

Thank you,


Dennis Robertson
