Habitat Young Leaders Build 2018 is now open for registration! Come and join our yearly big event! Create a world where everyone has a decent place to live with your hearts, hands and voices!
Habitat for Humanity Young Leaders Build brings together youth from across the Asia-Pacific region to support people and families in need of decent housing.
Every young person volunteering, fundraising, raising awareness and adding their voices in support of affordable housing, can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. The movement encourages youth to take the lead and motivate their peers to build homes and communities, on a Habitat build site and/or online through their social networks.
During the past HYLB campaign, nearly 100 volunteers from mainland China and Hong Kong came to Sancun village, Guangdong to help 2 families with urgent housing needs rebuild safe and affordable homes. Volunteers also assisted 45 families in this community build a new drainage system to improve disaster resilience.
Starting on December 5, 2017, Young Leaders Build 2018 will last for several months and reach the peak on April 21 2018.
