Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity

King’s Academy joined hands with a local branch of the international organization Habitat for Humanity which aims to “mobilize and support communities to implement projects that help people champion decent housing as a human right.” The mission of Habitat for Humanity is to make poverty and homelessness a matter of conscience and action so that it becomes unacceptable in every nation on earth.

Because King’s Academy believes that the home is a key catalyst in helping to permanently break the cycle of poverty and help people own a safe and decent place to live in Jordan and worldwide, students, faculty and staff participate in six to eight Habitat for Humanity building projects per annum. Students work hand in hand with local residents to build homes for less privileged families in Madaba, Taybeh, Mukhaybeh, Ghor Safi and Ajloun. An average of 15 students participate in each build, which often involves an overnight stay in the villages and the added experience of getting to know the area and the community better.
