Article 25, Section 1: “Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.” [from Universal Declaration of Human Rights]
To learn about the right to adequate housing, we visited two organizations that started within the Koinonia Farm community – the Fuller Center for Housing and Habitat for Humanity. On the morning of Day 5, campers conducted a service project with the Fuller Center’s Kirk and Thaddeus, helping rehab a house in Americus, GA. That afternoon, we visited the Habitat for Humanity Global Village to see houses that are built by Habitat in nations across the world. Finally, on the last night of camp we exercised our “right to leisure” by going swimming and having a cookout at a local state park! Click on any photo below to see a larger version.
