Global Village Off to the North

100 Global Village volunteers are needed this April to support in building homes for families needing secure tenure and adequate housing in Battambang City, Battambang province.

Habitat for Humanity Cambodia is establishing a Memorandum of Understanding with the Battambang Provincial Government for the development of available 41 plots of land (with an total land area of 2,952 sq m) for housing over 82 families in need of adequate shelter, the construction of a community center for Informal Settlement Office. The area is located within the Social Land Concession (SLC) project area in Battambang.

The agreement paves the way for HFH Cambodia to be duly authorized to operate and develop the area and to begin with family selection in accordance with the SLC policies, and furthermore led to the hosting of international Global Villages volunteers. This will be launched through the North Build happening on April 1-5, 2013.

HFH New Zealand is actively raising GV volunteers for this special build and HFH China has signed up GV teams as well. The proceeds of this Special Build will benefit more SLC families in urban Battambang.
