Making an Impact: Special Events
Across the Asia-Pacific region, Habitat for Humanity hosts events – large and small – to raise awareness, engage volunteers and garner funds.
“Blitz builds” bring large numbers of volunteers together for an adrenaline rush of building and completing houses very quickly: normally five or six days. Habitat’s most celebrated blitz builds, the annual Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project– has been held four times in the Asia-Pacific region.
“Advocacy specials” mobilize volunteers to highlight the need to tackle the scourge of substandard housing in their communities and all over the world.
Over 2.4 million people took part in Habitat for Humanity’s largest youth movement in 16 Asia-Pacific countries.
