Day 171

What image does the American Dream create in your mind? A house with a white picket fence, a nice car, and a good job? It's no secret that most Americans want to own homes, but we aren't the only ones.

Ravi, who was freed from a rice mill in India not long ago, had a lifelong dream to build a home for his family. Thanks to IJM, he had the tools that he needed to make that dream a reality (despite several setbacks). You can read his whole story here.

He was able to build his home because IJM was there, and IJM was there because people like you gave. And while building a home is important, lives are far more important. Will you build something that will last today?
