About Us

In 2006, Doug Sharp put together a team of architects within BSB Design with one goal: design a sturdy home, with lightweight materials, that would be easy to ship and could be built in one day by one family. All this for as little money as possible.

     RHO Appleseed is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to providing quality education and improving the lives of orphans and vulnerable children in Lusaka, Zambia. They currently operate a school and meal program for more than 100 children who would have little opportunity for education and a dangerously poor quality of life otherwise.

     Starting in January 2015, current students will start attending the local government school and will receive tutoring and meals from Appleseed. They will also receive scholarships for extra-curricular activities when needed from Appleseed.

     The center will be a place the children can continue to come to hang out, play games and be tutored. It will also be a lending library which will be the first of its kind in the area.

     Abod Shelters wants your help in lending a hand. RHO Appleseed Library and Community Center have asked for support with 3 Abod Shelters to be used for; housing / media center, a library and tutoring center. They have a down payment placed on land near the local village school so that it is readily available to the school and local village.Help us at Abod Shelters provide three homes for this community that is in desperate need so that they can continue to learn and thrive. $15,000 is needed to cover the homes, hot water boiler, solar light kit, sink and tap, shower and flooring for each, but we're grateful for every dollar that you're able to contribute. Thanks!


We apologize that our website is not currently recording your donations. So far we have received $4000 from the public to support this project. Thanks for your continued support!
