    6. 6. Proposal – A Bike Expedition to Build Back Better<br />Habitat for Humanity India has partnered with Convoy Control Club led by Mr. Vinod Rawat; a Jaipur Foot user on a unique motorbike expedition from Mumbai to Leh to help families in need of shelter.  The Club provides opportunities to differently abled individuals who dare to challenge their physical disability , showcase their talents and demonstrate their indomitable spirit. Against all odds, 5 riders from the club have come together to support this project. <br />The 5 riders will raise money to build 1 house with each house costing Rs.300000/- for  families belonging to the low income strata.  The riders hope to spread the message that all adversity can be conquered despite the odds. <br />The Leh Disaster Response Project will help in rebuilding 24 homes which were completely destroyed in the flood and mudslides in Leh, Ladakh last year. With support, the project will provide these families safe, environmentally friendly, culturally relevant and disaster resistant shelters. These new houses will enable the families to survive the extreme cold weather they are faced with each winter. <br />The 5  riders will ride on to Khardung La “ the world’s highest motorable pass” to dispel stereotypes of being dependent and motivate other differently abled to explore their own strengths and for the general public to recognize them as an equal counterpart. <br />At Leh, the final stop, the 5 riders will hoist the Tri-colour on 15th August and build with the families they have helped support.<br />Each rider has pledged to raise Rs.300000/-  to help build back better for a family….Will you help them? <br />Habitat for Humanity India – Leh Disaster Response Project<br />
