Designing an Enriched Home for HIV-Positive Children in India
Designed to mimic construction toys, Casa Rana is private housing for 15 HIV-positive children in Tamil Nadu, India
Tiruvannamalai, in Tamil Nadu, India has a small home called Casa Rana, to care for 15 HIV-positive children in the community. These homes will assist them throughout their childhood and onward, ensuring their lives will improve with the needed education, medical care and social support. The project leadership plans to create more similar foster homes if this first pilot program succeeds.
Casa Rana is divided into five separate housing structures each of a different color. Three of these buildings, colored in yellow, purple and orange-red, are the children’s sleeping quarters.
