They are also fully trained in how to seek assistance if the situation on the ground changes over the course of the build.The risk assessment for Global Village destinations is performed by the Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) Senior Specialist, Safety and Security.

Medical and Evacuation insurance is provided for volunteers in the case of injury, illness, or the need to leave the area or country due to factors out of Habitat for Humanity’s control.

Isn’t it wonderful to be able to give back to your community, even if it’s a small bit? Matt and I spent the morning volunteering at a Habitat for Humanity build, and every time we do things like this it’s always a humbling experience that also gives us renewed pride in our little community. There are so many ways and opportunities to get out there and volunteer your time, talents, and efforts to help your local community and I urge you all to get involved! It doesn’t take much just your willingness to help. Now that it is raining and turned into quite a chilly fall day we’re cozying in with a good snuggly blanket a movie and our hound. Speaking of cozy, how cozy does this family room in sweetshadylane look? I could definitely spend a rainy dreary day like today in it! 📸: sweetshadylane •

Yep. It’s Monday again. Can I have my weekend back?! This quote ☝🏻reminds me of building a 🏡 house for #HabitatforHumanity last year. I remember looking 👀around and seeing some standing and observing then swinging a 🔨hammer, some ready for action to lead and delegate 💪🏼and some trying to do everything by themselves— and I think that’s applicable to how we do business or do anything in life, right?
We are building another home (started last week) and excited to get my hands dirty for my 5th year in a row 👏🏼. •

Bia agora tem o lugarzinho dela para estudar, desenhar e brincar! Você sabia que a falta de um lugar adequado para estudar é um dos grandes fatores que prejudicam o desenvolvimento escolar de milhões de crianças no Brasil?
