Buy a brick, Build a home

We’re asking companies, organisations and individuals all over Ireland to support the goal of eliminating housing poverty around the world, through the simple and straightforward act of buying a brick. It’s that simple.

How the campaign works:

Each ‘virtual’ brick costs just €4 to buy.

The more bricks you buy, the more families that can be assisted.

In Zambia for example, it takes 1,300 bricks to build a home – that’s €5,200.

You can buy just one brick or bundles of bricks. 20 bricks, 50 bricks or maybe even a pallet of 500 bricks! It’s up to you.

Our target is to sell 250,000 bricks and raise €1m to assist vulnerable families across our housing programme. It’s our biggest campaign ever and we need your support!

Buy a brick, Build a home

Every brick is a building block. Buy a brick today and help more families achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.
