Location: Vanadzor TBD
Dear Friends & Colleagues,
As many of you may know every year since 2006 I've led a global team of volunteers to Armenia to build homes with Habitat for Humanity & the Fuller Center. These builds have been focused on those less fortunate many of whom live with their family's in shipping containers (also known as domiks).You may remember back in late 1989 post the collapse of USSR there was a major earthquake in the Armenia which left many parts of the city in ruins and many without homes. With the collapse of USSR prior to this time many agricultural and manufacturing jobs were lost leaving the overall economy in bad shape. While there has beenconsiderable progress since this time to help those displaced families, there still are many who don't have homes and are forced to live in containers.Thisis why habitat for humanity & fuller center have been focused on hosting teams in effort to someday have a proper house for each family - this is a big goal. What's very unique about these builds is that fuller center requires families to contribute sweat equity along side volunteers making the overall experience that much more meaningful.
I'm excited to once again lead a team a volunteers to the region in effort to build a homefor a displaced family.Have you ever wanted to help those less fortunate and make impact on their lives? Well here's your chance...I'm in process of recruiting former volunteers, friends and/or colleagues who may want to do something different with their vacations this year. This years trip is scheduled for Aug. 26th - Sept 5th and I'm hoping to have 8-10 volunteers join me. As with any volunteerism I always encourage volunteers to learn more about the organization - please click on the below link to learn more:
When you have time take a look at the site to learn more and of course let me know if you have any questions. I'm always available to answer any potential volunteers questions and understand that not everyone can commit to a 10 day volunteer effort. If you know of anyone that may be interested please don't hesitate in letting me know.
Please Note: The schedule for my build is available on the site. On the schedule I've provisioned for a couple of day's R&R such that new comers to the region can also take time out to see the sites
