    Habitat UCLA Shanty Town

    Every year, Habitat for Humanity has an Act! Speak! Build! Week, an advocacy week where we raise awareness about housing poverty and Habitat though a week full of fun activities and events.

    One of the events we're having this year is called Shanty Town, where groups build houses in Wilson Plaza out of extremely basic materials, including cardboard boxes, in order to emulate and understand the conditions in which much of the world's population lives. Afterwords, the groups are free to paint and decorate their houses, to be displayed for the rest of the day and entered in a competition to see who can build the best shanty house!

    We would love to have you guys at Shanty Town! This is a great way to get your name out on campus as well connect with other humanitarian student organizations. Shanty Town is on the Monday of 4th Week of Spring Quarter, April 21st, at 10am-2pm.

    More information to come from EWB UCLA as details are finalized.
