All Black Supports Tauranga Mexican Adventure
He might be 18,000 kilometres away, but All Black legend Conrad Smith is firmly behind a Tauranga school’s plan to build houses for poor families in Mexico.
A group of 34 Otumoetai College students and adults are travelling to Mexico in April 2013 where they will construct and furnish two houses.
All construction costs and tools are to be paid for by the group’s own fundraising.
This is the second such trip by a group from the school.
The first house was built by students last year for a family that had been living on a dirt floor with old packing cases for walls and no services.
According to one of the students who went on the first trip “The family we built the house for last year was so grateful - it was a life changing event for all involved.”
The two new houses will be built next door and it is hoped that over the years a community of houses will be established by successive groups from Otumoetai College.
“I was made aware of the group’s determination to raise the $40,000 necessary by my cousin who is part of the group and was pleased to give them my support,” said Conrad Smith.
“When you think they are paying their own way to get there as well it is a tremendous effort by the students and a very worthwhile cause.”
Smith has donated an All Black jersey signed by all of the 2012 Investec Rugby Championship winning squad to give the fund raising a boost.
“This is a unique reminder of a great series for the All Blacks and it will make a great Christmas present,” commented Smith
“I hope the jersey makes a healthy contribution to the student’s fundraising.”
