Afghan refugee Sadiq has a home like no other in Paris.The miniature house is in the backyard of Charlotte Boulanger and her partner Dominique – the first family to take part in a project aiming to put a roof over the head of refugees struggling to find a place to live in France.Reception centers across the country have room for about 80,000 asylum seekers, said Nadege Letellier, who heads the refugee program at Samu Social de Paris, a charity which matches refugees with volunteers willing to host them.Once people are granted refugee status, they have only six months to move out of reception centers and find a home. Sadiq's house is the first installed by the group as part of a project called In My BackYard, which aims to build 50 such houses over three years to accommodate up to 100 refugees in and around Paris.Minod hopes to cover costs by preselling the homes to camping and tourist resorts, which will take them over after they have served as refugees' homes for at least two years.
