Pakistan program completes construction of 25 sustainable homes and community structures in two villages of the Sindh Province hit hardest by last year's floods.

This is how the Heritage Foundation summarized the impact of the work currently being completed in the Shipkarpur and Khairpur areas of the Sindh Province. Construction perfected in the Swat valley last year has been replicated to provide housing to 25 families affected by the devastating floods. Training workshops on building low carbon footprint structures were carried out by the Heritage Foundation team, including founder Yasmeen Lari. In attendance were students in architecture, conservation and archeology as well as representatives of local NGO's and the Khairpur Civil Society.
