The CDNIS Habitat for Humanity (HFH) club (https://www.facebook.com/hfhcdnis) focuses on promoting awareness of the global issue of substandard housing to the school community. With our annual lower school fundraiser Paint Your Key just around the corner, HFH would like to give a summary of the build trip we went on earlier this school year. All HFH fundraisers help to sponsor donation fees on trips, because we hope this will give more students opportunities to experience first-hand the importance of continuous service work.
Ryan Wong, a grade 11 student, said: “There was a unique sense of accomplishment helping to construct a house, in the sense that we didn’t solve the family’s problems indirectly by donating – we went to the root of the problem, and stepped in to do the hard work.”
Ashley Zee, a grade 10 student, commented: “Being apart of yet another Habitat for Humanity build trip was truly an amazing experience. I am grateful for this opportunity in being able to take part in not only impacting the lives of the homeowners but also a baby stepping stone towards making a difference in eradicating inadequate housing.”
