Shwepyitha housing project, which is located at No. 19 Wingabar Ward, is 60 per cent completed and the houses are to become available by the end of December, according to the Pawt May Eain Social Development Association.
“The project is expected to finish soon. In the First Phase, a total of 264 houses are being constructed in Shwepyitha. So far, 60 per cent have been completed. Houses are 12×25 wide and 14×25 wide. Upon completion of the project in Shwepyitha, we will build new housing projects in South Dagon and North Dagon,” said Daw Ban Li Zar Aung, founder of Pawt May Eain Social Development Association (Insein).
Community Housing projects are being built in Halingtharyar, Shwepyitha, Dagon (South, North and East) and Dagon Seikkan townships. About 10,000 houses will be built in each township. The construction inputs will also be provided for those housing projects.
For implementation of the housing projects, Pawt May Eain Social Development Association has surveyed the population lists, including those who live in the squatters and dormitories.
“We are trying to finish these projects in December. We have only 13 days left,” said an official in charge of the Shwepyitha construction site.
“The association has performed surveys for the housing project. We are also listed in their survey. We attended their meeting, where they explained in detail about their project. We have to borrow Ks 3 million from them. After that, we will be given back Ks 76500 per month, including capital and interest for 70 months. This time, we are going to have our own houses,” said a local woman, who is listed among the 246 people.—Shwe Myint Oo (Shwepyitha) (Translated by Hay Mar)
