Become HOPEbuilders: Schools & Youth

We passionately believe in the power of young people to shape our future. Become a HOPEbuilder school & challenge pupils to do something in our own community which will have a life-changing impact for a family in urgent need of a safe place to call home.

Imagine. 1 in 4 people in our world are living in poor conditions.

Imagine. Your school can be part of a story of change for those most in need.

Through Habitat’s HOPEbuilder campaign, students learn about the issues and raise funds to make a difference.

A decent and affordable home provides strength, stability and independence to plan a better tomorrow. Families are healthier, children do better in school and parents’ income stabilises.

Home is the start of it; for Bertha and all of us.

Yet so many families still do not have a safe place to call home. 4 out of 5 homes in Malawi are in urgent need of repair.

Home is the start of it. Watch how home changed Bertha’s story in Malawi. It’s where the story changed for the 10 million people we have served since 1976.

 

 

HOPE Builders are the foundation of our work, enabling us to plan ahead and serve families like Bertha’s. This year we’d love your school to be part of this life-changing work. Read how The High School, Dublin got involved.

As a HOPE Builder, you will receive:

  • Our HOPE Builder logo to show the world you care

  • Involvement in Habitat PR opportunities

  • Regular updates on our work and the impact of your gift

  • Official HOPE Builder certificate to celebrate your achievements!

€2,800 will help the most vulnerable, like Bertha, to build a safe home, but whatever you raise will make a difference. Challenge pupils to help raise funds towards a Habitat home and change a families’ life forever. We have lots of resources to help you get started. 

Help restore hope, health and dignity to a family in need of a hand-up out of poverty.
