A Safe Home for Every Person
All of us need a safe home. Here we explore what that means and how we can improve the the safety of our own home, neighborhood, and world.
Homes around the world
When I first began to ponder the reality of a safe home for every person, I set up a Pinterest account and began pinning all kinds of homes people live in around the world. Homes are as unique as the people who create them, the environment they live in, and the materials they have available to build them.
I noticed in some communities people join together to build homes. A home can also become an artistic expression that conveys the spirit of those who live there.
I began to appreciate how unique and diverse we are.
How others engage
Every community faces challenges so I began another page that explores how different people and communities address the needs they face in their area. There are many creative projects that people align with to improve the living environment in their neighborhood.
What I learned is there is no one solution to every problem. This is not a cookie cutter approach but again, a diverse and unique expression of the people in that area.
Improving the lives of others
We found that we can invest in others through micro loans that make a lasting impact on their quality of life. At Jasnia we contribute a portion of our income to improve people’s homes, help with education expenses, support small businesses to raise the level of family incomes, and help farmers buy livestock and grain to increase local food production.
Together we are making a difference.
Honor, respect and cherish yourself and others. Invest in people with your time and whatever you have.
Educate yourself and seek wise teachers. What you learn opens opportunities to provide income for you to live in a safe home.
Drink clean water
Clean water is as important as clean air. According to WorldOMeters 1 out of every 10 persons does not have access to safe drinking water.
Stop waterborn illness
We partner with you to provide micro loans that finance home repairs, education, agriculture and small business. We work with an organization called Kiva.
