Habitat for Humanity to Participate in Carter Work Project

In November, a work group of volunteers led by Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley will be participating in the Carter Work Project 2015 in Pokhara, Nepal to build 100 strong, permanent homes. The group will work in partnership with families currently living in make shift shelters following the catastrophic earthquakes that rocked the region earlier this year.

While beautiful, Nepal is one of the world’s poorest countries with around 40 percent of the population living below the poverty line. Habitat for Humanity has worked in Nepal for more than 20 years and is moving quickly to help repair the lives of those affected by the earthquakes.

The group will attend the project headed by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter along with thousands of more volunteers from around the world. To help offset cost, the local group of volunteers is accepting donations to help with travel expenses at www.habitativ.org/donatetocwp.

For more information or to get involved in the project, visit www.habitativ.org/carterworkproject or call 951-296-3362.
