A shelter is a shielded and secure place to live or stay, as protection from weather or other potential dangers. A shelter is considered as one of the basic necessities of the human race, along with water and food.
Yet, in a rapidly developing country like India, income inequality is still present, which means over 20% of the population is below the poverty line, and near to 20 million people in India live without a stable home and even more without a source of clean water. This means that millions of families go without a safe and secure place to live.
Habitat for Humanity is an international organisation that has reached over 15 developing countries. Habitat India provides people with shelter, sanitation, and disaster risk response and reduction, which means it builds a safe and clean environment for people in need. It has improved the quality of life for over 4 million people, by building homes and public toilets and providing clean and sanitary water.
As someone with all these privileges given straight into my hands, I think it is my duty and obligation to donate to an organisation that had a widespread impact on the economy, in order to make those steps towards a better country, and in turn, a better world.
Habitat for Humanity India is a non-profit organization that builds homes and provides housing-related services to low-income, marginalized families across India
