BUILDING HOME FOR THE POOR COMMUNITY PROJECT
RDC inspires to promote and build the capacity for economic development, business and trade and entrepreneurship within the marginalised poverty-stricken communities in the Asia Pacific region.
In many parts of the Asia Pacific region, we have discovered that families of sometimes up to 8 or more people are living in houses that are very impoverished, without proper living quarters, clean water and sanitation.
This project aims to raise enough funds to build a house for 50 families in the beginning, expanding later on to more houses as our capacity and capabilities grows.

In the immediate term, RDC plans to embark on assisting marginalized communities under extreme poverty. This community is in a vicious cycle due to low-income, poor education background and marginalization.
a) The first step is to assist the community to have proper living conditions and future generations could improve their livelihood to grow further out of poverty.
b) A proper house consisting of 3 bedrooms with a family area, kitchen bathroom, with proper sanitation will be built for them.
This project shall fulfil United Nation SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) that is no. 1 No poverty, No. 2, Good health and wellbeing and No. 3 Clean water and sanitation.
