Global Home Warranties ltd is supporting the Big Build project in Romania during October 2014.
What is Big Build?
Big Build brings together companies, churches and individuals from across Northern Ireland to build in partnership with communities in need for one big impact week. Work begins on World Habitat Day, Monday 6th October, a day designated by the UN to draw attention to the urgent need for shelter. Over the week volunteers will be part of something very special as they work alongside the local community not just to build homes but to stand beside those who have so much less than we do and speak out about the challenges that poverty housing creates around the world.
It’s about Building Lives -Big Build 2014 will take place in Caracal, where volunteers will help transform a crumbling apartment block and deliver safe homes for 48 families. Big Build will complete the main construction project of a 3 year community empowerment programme which is focused on 12 communities in South West Romania targeting vulnerable groups; mainly Roma and especially women, young people and children.
Habitat for Humanity Romania is working as part of a consortium of community development organisations to deliver the holistic support families need to transform their future. By increasing educational and livelihood support and helping families get the social support they need the programme will deliver real impacts for the future.
