May was a very special month as it marked the 5th Anniversary of Habitat for Humanity Argentina’s Global Village program. Over the past five years we have received 41 teams! This means hundreds of volunteers from different parts of the United States, Canada, Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The generous contribution from each volunteer has enabled us to serve over 540 families with housing solutions and over 1200 families with technical assistance, financial education and other empowerment-orientated training. As we continue to face the needs in our country; in particular the inadequate housing conditions, we are ever more passionate about increasing our impact to assist those less privileged in our country.
