Habitat for Humanity
Why I chose Habitat for Humanity.
This non-profit organization fascinated me because of its ability to build homes for others with nothing in return. Habitat for Humanity is a genuinely good organization that provides healthier, safer lives for the recipients. I wasn’t interested in learning about some sort of technology, but more about how a home can impact a person’s life in the best ways possible; which is precisely Habitat's goal.
