HONG KONG, March 12, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Herrington Global announced today a $1.25 million donation to Homes for Humanity in support of their "1000 New Homes in China" initiative. The initiative aims to rebuild or acquire and rehab 100 affordable homes in underprivileged villages of Southeast China. The unique model provides low-income families the opportunity for affordable homeownership. Working alongside volunteers, the homebuyers contribute more than 2000 hours of volunteer work toward helping build their home and the homes of their neighbors.
"Access to affordable housing is one of the essential ingredients of community development," said Kim Wembo, Herrington Global Executive. "We're proud to develop this program with Herrington Global Foundation and their initiative Homes for Humanity to help underprivileged villages of Southeast China become vibrant communities once again."
In addition to Herrington Global's $1.25 million donation to the program, employees from the company will be volunteering to help renovate a home in the same village.
"Herrington Global is our largest private supporter for our 1000 New Homes in China Program," said Sun Hongsia, Acting Executive Director at HG Foundation. "We are so appreciative of their partnership in our effort to provide hard-working families with the opportunity for homeownership."
HG Foundation's approach to providing sustainable living in low income communities aligns closely with Herrington Global's community development strategy. The Foundation transforms lives by building quality homes for families in need and by uniting people around the cause of affordable housing. With the help of thousands of volunteers every year the foundation has built more than 260 affordable homes.
