There were many incredible milestones met by Habitat for Humanity in 2014! Take a look back at the work we did around the world in this Year in Review video:
I have a great update to share with team members for our trip to Bolivia - we have officially met our minimum requirement of volunteers! After almost six months of recruitment, dozens of applications and nearly 25 phone interviews, our team is now complete. We've built a team of 12 so we can build homes with two families in Cochabamba. I will continue to accept applications and conduct interviews until we reach our maximum of 15 people.
Our team members range in age from 19 to 60+ and are from every region across the U.S. Some are new to Habitat for Humanity and our mission of building homes, communities and hope around the world and some have been on multiple Global Village trips or volunteered with a local Habitat affiliate. Each member has unique interests and skills, but all of us agree that we want to do our part in helping families in need of adequate shelter have a simple, decent and affordable home to live in. I'm so excited that we have reached this milestone and I look forward to equipping you with as much information and guidance as I can to help you prepare for our trip to Bolivia. ~ Tammie
In fiscal year 2013, Habitat for Humanity served 124,946 families around the world and reached an amazing milestone of building, repairing or rehabilitating 800,000 homes since being founded in 1976. These achievements wouldn't be possible without the help of supporters, volunteers and donors. If you'd like to get involved with Habitat, you can join my Global Village trip as we travel to Cochabamba, Bolivia to help build two Habitat homes with families in need of simple, decent and affordable shelter.
