Highlights-
  • The Two Wayanad friends are on a mission to build houses for poor.
  • They are on a cross-country bicycle journey with the goal of constructing five houses for five underprivileged families.

House is the basic necessity for all, which provides a shed for living. Lucky are those who have the shed above their head. But some ill-fated do not even have a shed to live in. Understanding the importance of a house, the two Kerala boys have come up to extend their hand to those without a house.

The Two Wayanad friends embarked on a cross-country bicycle journey with the goal of constructing five houses for five underprivileged families. Nigin and Reneesh've been cycling around the state, asking for a one-rupee donation for the cause. Nigin is a physical education teacher at a private school, while Reneesh works as a salesperson at a mobile shop.

The motto of the ambitious plan

Donate Rs 1 and change someone's life is their mantra for this ambitious effort. "Yes, we're simply asking for Rs 1 because that's an amount we can ask from a rich as well as a poor person," says Nigin.

How does the mission start?

Reneesh and Nigin met 12 years ago and somehow understood that they both stand on the same plane of helping others in need. Since then, they visited each other frequently and had a conversation about making strategies on how to extend a hand for help. "Our conversation has resulted in numerous little charitable deeds, assisting individuals in need”, said Reneesh
During one such meeting, they discussed the possibility of assisting in the construction of houses for the poor because "homes remain an unrealized goal for many in our country." Joshy, a friend of theirs, sold them 20 cents for Rs 7 lakh. "He gave us a discount since he recognized our goal," Reneesh explained.

Will stop pedaling, Once the houses are completed

They successfully raised enough money (approximately Rs 2 lakh) after riding 360 kilometers to lay the foundation for the dwellings on a 20-cent plot of land. Prior to their journey, the duo reportedly purchased the land from a friend. The landowner granted them the discounts and enabled them to pay in installments, after knowing the reason behind the good cause.

During their journey, the recipients will be chosen. They'll largely be from Kerala, since moving to Wayanad from other states may be tough.

2 BHK to be provided

Each house, which would cost Rs 6 lakh to construct, will feature a carpeted space of 600 square feet, two bedrooms, a hall, and a kitchen. They formed an arrangement with Joshy to send modest sums as and when they raised money because they didn't have any, and he agreed to enable building work to begin until the whole amount was paid.

People recognizing the noble cause

They carry a solar-powered battery to charge their phones, as well as a tent and a portable gas cylinder to prepare food while on the road. Initially, both the boys stayed in the tent and prepared their own meals. However, during the last three weeks, many people have stepped up to provide them with food and lodging after recognizing their noble cause.
