Join Bend Area Habitat for Humanity on a build trip to Port of Spain, Trinidad on November 5-13, 2016. Bend Habitat has 12 volunteer spots for motivated volunteers who want to have an amazing experience in a different culture and help low income families in Trinidad and Tobago! Volunteers will help build a concrete block home for a Habitat family near Port of Spain. Volunteers will have the opportunity to work alongside the future homeowners and learn about their culture.
The team will be led by two staff from Bend Area Habitat for Humanity as part of a larger Global Village community of building projects across the world. Get your hands dirty on the work site, meet families whose housing situations have been improved with Habitat’s help, experience the country like an insider and do it all alongside a team of like-minded volunteers. This build is your next step with Habitat to help make the world a better place to live. No experience is necessary.
The trip will include five days of building, as well as opportunities for cultural experiences including; dancing and steel pan lessons, museum and historical tours, beaches and more. The cost is $1,860 per person plus airfare.
