“It is an honour to be associated with Habitat for Humanity India. I feel everyone can help families in need of decent shelter achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance to build better lives for themselves. As the youth ambassador, I can use my voice to raise awareness about the need for affordable housing and improved sanitation. I am equally excited to be part of Habitat’s youth movement – Habitat Young Leaders Build and look forward to encourage the youth across the country to speak out for the need for decent homes as a way out of poverty and toward self-sustainability”, said Mihir Joshi about this association
Rajan Samuel, Managing Director, Habitat for Humanity India says, “We are grateful towards Mihir for joining the Habitat movement to build a better India. His passionate support to the cause of housing and sanitation is inspirational. India has more than 50% of its population below the age of 25. If these youngsters join the cause of housing and sanitation, we will achieve our dream of housing for all and of building a Swachh Bharat. We appeal to the youth across the country to join us for building an India where everyone has a decent place to live.”
As the youth ambassador, Mihir Joshi has launched Habitat India’s handwash awareness campaign, which aims to reach out to more than 4 million youth. The initiative is part of Habitat Young Leaders Build – Habitat’s largest youth campaign that brings the youngsters together across the Asia-Pacific region to support people and families in need of decent housing.
