‘Knowledge is power, I feel so empowered!’
‘This is just one of the lovely comments we got as feedback from our first Home Repair Workshop in June, 2019.
The interactive sessions included plumbing, repairs/maintenance and electrical work.
Most of the attending whanau had already received repairs to their homes by Habitat and were hugely appreciative with the work that they had received from Habitat.
The goal of the day was to provide valuable basic knowledge and skills the attendees could take back to their homes and whanau and put into action.
The feedback of the day was tremendous with participants saying they felt empowered and confident to tackle tasks in their home that they had previously found overwhelming.
‘Thank you Habitat for everything I have learnt today. Amazing generous people who fixed my whare, keep up the excellent work’.
‘What can I say, this field of service is effective for all of us to be educated by your expertise. I am so proud to participate in this workshop. I would recommend it to everyone’.
