A/ Work context 

Resilient Housing Program is a primary program of Song Foundation, started in 2013. There are two main projects: the Safe House Project and the Happy Village Project. 

The Safe House Project aims to help communities that are impacted or under high risk of natural disasters and climate change effects to rebuild or reinforce their houses. In 2022, the project will be implemented in Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Thua Thien Hue, Quang Nam, and Dong Thap provinces. 

The Happy Village Project aims to support families on the village scale to reduce the impact of natural disasters by providing a safe place to live, ensuring harmony between humans and the environment, and promoting indigenous culture. The main activities are modifying the master plan, reinforcing or rebuilding the houses close to the local design, improving the infrastructure, and supporting short-term livelihoods. There are two Happy Village Projects in Bac Tra My and Nam Tra My Districts, Quang Nam Province. One is the resettlement site of the Xo Dang ethnic group, and the other is the resettlement site of the Ca Dong ethnic community.
