Apart from the Build activity, Habitat for Humanity has also launched a campaign called ‘Rupee for Change’. This campaign seeks to highlight, how even a single rupee can make a change to the lives of the underprivileged children.

Under this campaign, the NGO is conducting educational workshops in schools. At these workshops, the school children are informed about the issues being faced by kids belonging to underprivileged sections of the society.

In addition, throughout the campaign, parents and students would be encouraged to contribute a sum Re.1 per day. The amount thus collected would be used to fund for social initiatives like building homes for poor and provide sanitation facilities to women and children in slums. The Rupee for Change campaign has found support in more than 100 schools in India.
