Our international teams have helped us to continue our construction target by working a Monday to Friday week on various homes around Trinidad. Not only do these teams build but they also donate and cover the cost of their entire trip! The volunteers not only aid in providing safe shelter for homeowners, they are also immersed in local culture and truly get a ‘trinbagonian’ experience while they are here.
The Global Village program is an initiative Habitat Trinidad & Tobago has been grateful to facilitate since June 2011. One of the memorable aspects is that our families work alongside these teams as they help construct their home. From drilling, lifting steel frame, installing roof frames we have seen acrobatic volunteers who had a blast in country working on our homes. It is the goal at Habitat Trinidad & Tobago to form a team that would visit another country who requires the same help to a family in need.
