Through the General Directorate of Strategic and Special Projects of the Presidency (PROPEEP), the 40 eco-homes will be built taking advantage of recycled solid waste, reducing dependence on aggregates.
It is a project of social inclusion and human dignity that will give shelter to people in extreme poverty and that allows an efficient solution to the housing deficit.
“Another feature that this solution offers is that construction is fast. These 40 homes will be ready for you, Mr. President, to come and hand them over to each of their owners, next March 2022, ”reported PROPEEP director Neney Cabrera.
The eco-homes will have a drinking water system, sanitary and rain drainage, vehicular circulation, solar panels, green area and classified garbage area.
Transforming my Country
Immediately afterwards, a pilot plan was started where some 300 houses will be intervened in the first stage, through the Transforming my Country voucher.
The president visited the home of the first beneficiary, Félix Batista, with whom he talked about how the Government will improve his home.
“So you (Félix Batista), go to a local hardware store, whatever you want, look for the materials and then we also help you to be able to work with the workforce, together with people from the locality and also from the city council,” he said the ruler when delivering the bond.
And he added: “What we want is for you to improve your little house and for your children and grandchildren to be safe here. Count on us and God bless you!”
Upon receiving the benefit, Don Félix expressed feeling rejoiced because he had never been favored and today, thanks to the initiative of the Government, he receives the expected help.
For his part, the general coordinator of the Social Policy cabinet, Tony Peña, said that the initiative will revolutionize the social investments of the government of President Abinader, because nothing impacts more on the direct beneficiary of the Dominican Family than having their own and dignified home.
“It is good to point out that through the governorships and mayors,
will hire local labor for the completion of the house. We are facing a clean and transparent method, which has an impact on the revitalization of the economy and local employment to fix thousands of homes at the same time throughout the country, “said Peña.

“It is a project that we have designed especially for Christmas because we want to help them make their house beautiful for when their family and people come,” said Abinader.
This program began last week in the 27 de Febrero neighborhood of the capital city, and will impact 100,000 homes throughout the country.
