Heather is raising funds, along with 14 other team members, to support a Habitat for Humanity Global Village trip to Honduras on November 3-13, 2012. Habitat for Humanity builds homes for needy families. These families are presently living in substandard and often unhealthy conditions, and they need a simple, decent place to live. They earn an income, but not enough to qualify for a conventional bank loan.
As part of the Habitat for Humanity agreement, each family-with the help of volunteers like Heather-spend hundreds of hours building their home through what is referred to as "sweat equity." Once the house is ready, they move in and begin paying for it through a no-profit loan from Habitat for Humanity. These mortgage payments then "roll over" and help finance houses for other families. Having families contribute to the building of their homes and those of their neighbours, and then pay for them with reasonable terms, instills self-esteem and the pride of homeownership. Habitat for Humanity refers to this as a hand up, not a handout.
