A HIGH END RENOVATION – BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT.
The founder of The Human Kind Project and her partner decided to rebuild an outstanding home in Woollahra while supporting the Foundation to support a community of over 37,000 people in Malawi.
Developed by Human Kind Project Founder/Co-Founder of Anytime Fitness Jacinta McDonell and her partner, Founder of Concept Projects Australia Matthew Connolly they decided to enrol the help of each trade on the renovation to bring about a positive social change.
The idea is simple – each trade donated a % of their contract to The Human Kind Foundation – a non-profit foundation that funds life-changing projects in Africa and India which McDonell set up in 2015, has worked a treat by raising over $65,000 for the community that both Jacinta and Matt visited in 2017.
The house was purchased in Jan 2017 by the couple with the clear vision to establish a large home that captures the beauty and tranquility of Cooper Park – while also creating a greater impact for the lives of those they support.
Living in the street at the time they saw the potential to create a calm and serene home with the incredible luxury of the best location.
The home is now almost complete and will be proudly named Nchalo after the community it supports in Malawi, via the foundation and the work of The Hunger Project the community of 37,483 people are set to reach self-reliance in the coming months with much thanks to this project. (Community self-reliance is the shift from any dependency on an organization and their ability to rely on their own resources, leadership & capabilities)
Both Connolly and McDonell believe in “doing things differently” and this house is a true measure of the couple’s passion and skills.
“The 5 bedroom home has been designed to capture, simple living at its best with the addition of a lift and all the things you would expect in a high end renovation, but it’s the heart of this home that will capture you the most. With an eye for detail nothing has been missed and the home will soon be ready for the right family to make it their home” says McDonell
The house will be on the market in late July and will be sold by Alex Phillips from Phillips Pantzer Donnelley http://www.ppdre.com.au/
