This year in the July school holidays, five enthusiastic and dedicated Year 11 students; Kate, Kiarra, Lucy, Owen, Michael and teacher Katrina Traeger will travel to Fiji as part of the Habitat for Humanity Fiji (HFHF) and Habitat for Humanity Australia (HFHA) building project.
Habitat for Humanity assists in disaster response and provide interest free loans to families, allowing them to build much-needed homes. These families would otherwise have no means of owning their own solid dwelling.
When we think of Fiji, we think of an idyllic holiday destination of palm trees and white sands. However, 17% of Fiji’s population live in one of more than 180 squatter or informal settlements. An estimated 80 percent of people living in these settlements live below the national poverty line, earning less than 90 Fiji dollars (AUS$65) a week.
Throughout this semester we will be working towards raising a total of $6,000 which will go directly towards the purchase of building supplies for this mission trip (all participants will fund their own travel and accommodation expenses).
Saturday, 18 May at 7pm in Anakalypsi (Library).
Tickets: $10 each or book a table of 10 for $100
