We spoke to Pamela Mather, a longstanding Habitat volunteer, she started volunteering at the Hamilton ReStore over 15 years ago.
How did she end up volunteering at the ReStore? Well, it all sparked from her deciding that “Habitat is a worthwhile organisation to support – I didn’t know too much about Habitat at the time compared to now, but I quickly learnt.”
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights affirms access to adequate housing as a vital part of human rights. The Six Dimensions of Housing Adequacy is used by Statistics New Zealand, and Habitat for Humanity CNI to describe and identify what we mean by a “decent” place to live. General Manager Nic Greene outlines the tenets of each dimension.
