During PulPaper in Helsinki, Vince Maynard of Pulp Paper & Logistics told us about Joshua, his son. In April 2015 Joshua wishes to set off to Mexico together with a small group of other teenagers and help a poverty stricken family build their first basic secure home. The new home will be built from the foundation upwards only with basic hand tools. Design and structure of the new home will be simple to ensure that a group of unskilled people can complete the project in as little as five days.
To cover the cost of the trip and building work each member of Joshua's group needs to raise over £1,300. Once the group's financial target of over £11,700 is met, the trip in April 2015 can happen.
The envisioned trip is part of the ReBuild Mexico 2015 project which is designed to provide practical help needy Mexican families while creating cross-cultural understanding for the participants. ReBuild is organized by Urban Saints UK and Amor Ministries in San Diego, California.
“MoveRoll operates in a global environment, and we are aware of our social responsibility, both domestically and internationally. As a sponsor of PS Kemi Kings, we are giving something back to the local community of Kemi, which has been a big part of MoveRoll's development and success story. By supporting Joshua,we help him and his group improve the life of a family in Mexico, just across the border of the USA, which is currently one of our biggest markets”, says Mikko Rantanen.
