The Home Depot Build

Sanke-Gurmu Family

The Sanke-Gurmu family came to the U.S. from Ethiopia after a long process, seeking a new life in America. They have worked hard here in Austin and become engaged in their church and community, but they’re currently sharing a small apartment with their three children. The family had owned a home in Ethiopia and were interested in putting down permanent roots here, but the cost of home was too high. Thankfully, they knew of Habitat for Humanity through its wonderful work in Africa, and looked into the program here in Austin! They’re working on sweat equity now and excited to build with Home Depot this spring!
