Habitat for Humanity is a leading global nonprofit housing organization, which supports home construction and maintenance services worldwide including Hong Kong and other Asia-Pacific countries. To raise the general public concern on housing issue, we launch an annual campaign “Young Leaders Build” to build homes for rural families in China, which will involve more than 100 youth volunteers to join.
Organized for the seventh consecutive year, HYLB invites young people across the Asia-Pacific region to support families in need of decent homes, rallying against urgent housing issues by volunteering, fundraising and speaking out. The campaign encourages caring and concerned youth to take action together to build homes, communities and hope on a Habitat build site and over their social networks.
Although Guangzhou is one of the most rapidly developing cities in China, it is also an area that has visible polarization of the rich and poor. More than thousands of families in rural areas are living in primitive and dangerous houses which urgently need our help to restore pa decent place to live.
