Insight into to the roots of Habitat for Humanity
This narrative fills in some significant details regarding the precursor projects in Zaire that later evolved into the Habitat for Humanity. The involvement of Koinonia in this process are clearly explained. Also, the fact that Millard and Linda Fuller connected with Koinonia on the recommendation of Southern Poverty Law Center co-founder Morris Dees is of interest, in that it reveals a link between the three organizations: Koinonia, SPLC, and Habitat for Humanity. The proximity of Koinonia to Plains, home of Jimmy Carter, accounts for Carter's involvement in both Koinonia and Habitat.
