As a high school student in Bangalore, I am well aware of the millions of people that live in extreme poverty and very poor living conditions.
I have always tried to play my part in helping the underprivileged with their daily lives. In fact, I teach government school children science and mathematics for 2 hours every week, which is something that truly brings along an immense feeling of satisfaction. Moreover, it instills a sense of joy and pleasure being able to make a difference in the lives of others.
It is essentially this motive that drew me to Habitat for Humanity, as it gave me a platform through which I can extend my support to a greater audience. I strongly believe in the goal of this organization, which is to provide everyone with a suitable place to live. Ranging from shelter assistance to sanitation awareness, Habitat for Humanity is making a big difference in the lives of those under the poverty line. Not only is it assisting those with dire need, but it is also helping India as a country progress in terms of overall development.
Basic shelter is not only a necessity, but also a right, and I believe that through this altruistic organization, we can make it happen. It is truly a wonderful experience and opportunity to be a part of the Millennial Champion initiative. Furthermore, I aspire to be a better human being, while exploring the rather humanitarian aspect of my life in order to help those who need this service.
Although 50000 may not seem very significant in comparison to the ultimate goal of this journey, every little step counts. I am striving to do my part in this wonderful initiative, and I hope I can make the difference I envision through this fundraiser.
Habitat for Humanity India is a non-profit organization that builds homes and provides housing-related services to low-income, marginalized families across India
