Story

Hi! Our names are Grace, Maeve and Anna. We are all 16 and from NI and really want to make a change. We are hoping to head to Romania with Habitat for Humanity from the 28th of June to the 8th of July. As kids growing up, like many I'm sure, it was always a struggle trying to resist the urge to look away when the harrowing commercials came on illustrating the horrific situations in developing countries. We always felt guilt, no matter what mood we were in. How can we live in our comfortable homes when there are those with nothing? We're all human of equal value; how can some have more than others? It is an abomination. There is so many inequalities in the world; those without water, food, equal rights, freedom, peace, those without a place to call home. We may not really consider the last one. Imagine living in a makeshift house made out of rubbish, constantly damp, filthy, disease ridden. This is the horrific reality of many people living in the world and it simply isn't one which has to be. Every single person has the right to good, clean and healthy housing and I am determined to do my part to help this cause and give families in Romania what they desperately deserve. That is why this summer we are raising this money to make a difference. We aspire to travel with the charity Habitat for Humanity on a Youth Build project, building houses for families. The money will help me get to Romania, raise funds for Habitat for Humanity and also raise money for the materials needed to build the houses. This is our time to give something more. It is a life changing experience to help change lives of other and we would would love help in order to help us get there.

Thank you very very much :)
