I am raising money to travel on three service trips with Habitat for Humanity to build houses in Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh. The money will pay for my transport, basic accommodation and building supplies in order for each 9 day trip to help construct houses - A portion of the proceeds will also go towards the Habitat for Humanity organisation in the UK as well as the organisations in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal. Below are details of the project in each country:

Sri Lanka: Reconciliation Build
Build peace by building homes and community

Location: Western Province - Negombo (23 miles from Colombo)
Target communities: Tamils, Sinhalese, Muslims. These will be people who have been affected by the 30 year civil war and either were displaced and returned or relocated to the area. This is your opportunity to join in the reconciliation efforts in Sri Lanka and build a community of peace.
Construction technology: Local building styles - using cost effective and environmentally friendly materials and methods.
Target number of houses: 22

Nepal: Everest Build II
HFH Nepal return to the majestic Himalayas to help more families change their lives.

Location: Dhulikhel, Kavre (around 80 miles from Kathmandu).
Target communities: The indigenous groups of Dhanwar, Pariyar and Sarti who are part of a community saving group scheme. Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world, where around 430,000 families live in sub-standard housing. This is the second Big Build working with these communities so it will be a chance to see the huge amounts of progress being made.
Construction technology: Eco-friendly bamboo and adobe housing technologies.
Target number of houses: 40

Bangladesh: Friendship Build
Build hope with families determined to break out of poverty.

Location: Sylhet area (around 150 miles from Dhaka).
Target communities: The Sylhet community in north Bangladesh. The families living in this community have been blighted by poverty and poverty housing for generations. Now is your chance to extend the hand of friendship towards them and work alongside them as they break out of poverty and begin new lives of opportunity.
Target number of houses: 20
