We believe it’s important for people to have a safe, clean place to live.
Since the Amway One by One Campaign for Children partnered with Habitat for Humanity last year, distributors and employees across the Americas have worked hard to make that happen.
Here are three examples where our distributors and employees are building hope for others.
In Guatemala, Amway employees and distributors from the United States, Mexico, Barbados, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Honduras, Colombia and El Salvador built a dozen homes. They also raised half a million dollars, matching a $250,000 gift of Tim Foley, longtime Amway distributor and Amway Founders Council member. These funds will finance construction of more than 40 homes throughout Latin America over the next five years.
In São Paulo, Brazil, Amway distributors and employees raised nearly $5,000, and used it to renovate two homes. Their next project? Already they are evaluating how to apply their time and talents to help people affected by the devastating floods in Rio de Janeiro.
Finally, after raising $16,000, more than 25 Amway Colombia distributors, employees and their families constructed two homes in only two days.
