From Sam Amato

I've always wanted to make some sort of difference. I realized that sitting at home posting on social media isn't enough, I needed to get out there. So Malawi, here I come!

Hey guys! I've now crossed $500, and 25% of my goal! And we did it in just three short days!!! I'm so appreciative of all the support I have, it's overwhelming! Thank you all again, even if you guys aren't going to Malawi, you're instrumental in helping these people. Without your support, we couldn't build these homes. Thank you!

About Me

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page!

I figured it was enough sitting in the light of my phone screen hitting retweet every thirty seconds. It's time for me to get out there and help those in need. We have a situation where many of our world leaders are calling for deeper lines in the sand, regardless of what our governments do, or don't do, I feel as if I have a responsibility to reach across borders and cultures and make connections, and give my help. I've never done anything like this before

More Info

Malawi is a country of immense beauty — and extreme poverty. It is one of the least developed countries in the world. The economy is predominately agricultural and is dependent on substantial international assistance.

Seventy-five percent of the population lives on less than US$2 a day. Because of the widespread poverty, four out of five families live in substandard homes, with little hope of ever being able to afford a decent house. A typical village hut is built of mud and daub with a dirt floor and thatched roof. The conditions put families at high risk of disease.

Habitat for Humanity Malawi, established in 1986, constructs houses of burnt clay bricks, concrete floors and tile roofs. More than 5,000 houses have been built so far. By providing improved housing to families, Habitat Malawi has enhanced lives and reduced the occurrence of malaria, respiratory illnesses and intestinal parasites.

Global Village is Habitat for Humanity’s international volunteer program. Teams travel to over 40 countries to work alongside communities, build housing solutions, and experience local culture. Our goal is to change the lives of the people we serve, as well as the lives of the volunteers.

About Habitat for Humanity International 

Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity has grown from a grassroots effort that began on a community farm in southern Georgia in 1976 to a global nonprofit housing organization in nearly 1,400 communities across the U.S. and in over 70 countries. People partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Through shelter, we empower. To learn more, visit habitat.org.
