Jimmy's Building Homes in Zambia

*For anyone looking to do something incredible today.

In June 2015, with the help of all the generous people who contributed, I travelled to Zambia with the promise and desire to make a difference and to fuel hope. Our team kept that promise, and built two homes for families with hearts of gold, that were in desparate need.

I made a promise to the truly admirable people of Zambia that I would fundraise again on their behalf and return to help their community. Please give me the opportunity of keeping that promise this June, 2016. You will never know the full magnitude of your support, but know it will make an exceptional difference. I seen the gratitude first hand last year, and it brought tears to my eyes. 

We will be travelled to the same village in Ndola, Zambia with the charity Habitat for Humanity. The money fundraised goes to the materials and building blocks of the houses. With a number of Law students on our NUI Galway team, we will also be assisting locals in writing their wills, so that they can protect their homes at a time of bereavement.

I have the utmost respect to every person who contributes and donated to this cause. Play your part in doing something incredible today. Thank you.

With Respect & Gratitude,

Jimmy McGovern
