Project Lakota

Region: United States

This program, located on the Pine Ridge Reservation, is home to two of the poorest counties in the United States. One of the biggest social problems on the reservation is a lack of adequate housing for Native American families, especially women and children. Project Lakota addresses this issue by engaging Lakota youth in building and repairing homes for needy families. Learn more about Project Lakota on their website.
