Hope and Work




Millard Fuller holds young David Baco at the 2003 dedication of his family’s Habitat house in Cluj, Romania. The Baco house was designated as the 150,000th Habitat house built worldwide.

Through the years, Millard Fuller visited Habitat homeowners and volunteers around the world. One of his favorite quotes — an exhortation he was quick to share during his travels — was a thought from architect and planner Daniel H. Burnham. “Make no little plans; they have not magic to stir men’s blood. … Make big plans … aim high in hope and work.”
