Students' challenge to raise funds
You can also support families in Romania!
Enjoying ten applicants for every place on the annual Global Village team, Wesley College in Dublin has developed a very successful long-term partnership with Habitat for Humanity in Beius, Romania. In the second year of this service-learning program, Wesley students accepted a challenge to raise 10,000€ to fund an accelerated build – covering the cost of materials and constructing a home from start to finish in one week. In June, to celebrate their ten-year partnership, Wesley joined the pan-European YouthBUILD 2013 by sending 200 students and 50 parents and staff to Beius along with funding to build ten homes with families in need.
