Habitat for Humanity Netherlands funds new project
More than 120 people welcomed the start of a Habitat Netherlands funded project that will provide water and sanitation training and housing improvements in northern Bangladesh.
The Habitat Bangladesh regional office in Mymensingh, about 140 km north of Dhaka, organised the project inception ceremony last month (January 2014) at the conference hall of Upazila Parishad, Mymensingh Sadar.
Habitat Bangladesh's national director John Armstrong introduced guests, including government officials, NGO representatives and Community Based Organisations (CBOs) leaders - all of whom spoke positively about the upcoming project and its benefits to the community.
You will join ex-pats and locals carrying sand and bricks, making mortar, laying bricks, leveling sand floors and breaking bricks. And you will meet and work alongside the homeowner families to hear their story and see how the home you're building will be life changing for them.
