20 Feb Habitat for Humanity announced as our new charity partner
MAJESTIC ANNOUNCES NEW CHARITY PARTNERSHIP WITH HABITAT FOR HUMANITY GREAT BRITAIN
Energy and utilities specialist group Majestic Securities are pleased to announce their new official charity partnership with Habitat for Humanity Great Britain, a member of global charity Habitat for Humanity network which helps to fight housing poverty around the world.
Majestic has a strong commitment to continuous improvement in sustainable development, helping clients streamline their energy consumption, become more sustainable and manage the cost of utilities efficiently. Across our group of companies our people address the relationship between environmental stewardship, social responsibility, industry expectations, housing services, and business operations.
Our first fundraising initiative is to raise £20,000 and send 10 intrepid adventurers to Cambodia in November 2020 to work alongside a community in Battembang to build a much needed home for a local family. Our team of volunteers will get a rare glimpse of real communities and families, and a huge feeling of satisfaction that their trip will leave a lasting legacy of hope.
Peter Dosanjh, Majestic’s Chairman, says:
“Our vision is for a partnership which ‘builds thriving communities’ so we are thrilled to announce Habitat for Humanity GB will be our charity partner for 2020 and beyond. Each project we become involved with here in the UK and around the world will provide opportunities for employees to invest their time, energy and skills. Whether it’s fundraising in the office or physical labour helping to build homes, I know we will experience a great sense of achievement together. With our group of companies largely supplying utilities to buildings and homes we decided it was time to dedicate our charitable efforts towards something closer to home, quite literally! Habitat for Humanity, like us, believe that a good home is one of the most important things you can have in life.”
Tum Kazunga, CEO at Habitat for Humanity Great Britain, adds:
“There is an ongoing struggle in the world to eradicate housing poverty. Millions of people wake up every day without a decent place to live in. With partnerships such as the one with Majestic Group, we are able to get one step closer to our vision of a world where everyone has a safe place to call home. Supporting builds, such as the one in Cambodia, enables us to tackle the housing crisis in areas which would otherwise struggle to cope on their own.”

About Habitat for Humanity
One in five people across the world live in slums and substandard housing, locking them into a grinding cycle of poverty. This lack of housing negatively affects their health and well-being, educational prospects, and ability to make a living.
Habitat for Humanity’s vision is a world where everyone has a safe place to call home. We believe that a decent home helps to permanently break the cycle of poverty and allows families to achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance.
We believe decent homes are the heartbeat of strong communities and so we also fight for land rights for women, upgrade urban slums and informal settlements, improve access to water and sanitation, and help communities become more resilient in the face of natural disasters.
Working in nearly 70 countries, we support the most marginalised and vulnerable in society, and welcome people of all religions and none to partner in our life-changing work. By working hand in hand with communities since 1976, we have provided over 1 million homes and helped over 6.8 million people.
