Last November 12-16, 2018, Habitat’s International Board of Directors (IBOD) visited Cambodia for their quarterly meeting, to review the organization’s operations and strategic direction. The IBOD of Habitat for Humanity International is responsible for establishing policy and guiding Habitat’s work to construct, rehabilitate, repair and improve housing in approximately 70 countries.
During the week, the IBOD members together with more than 100 volunteers, built 4 houses in Udom, Phnom Penh, in commemoration of President Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project (JRCWP) in the Asia Pacific. Dubbed as the “Legacy Build,” this build is part of a series retracing the steps of the JRCWP builds in the region across the years. Cambodia is the last leg of the series.
Aside from this, on November 15, 2018, the IBOD also attended a gala dinner, together with leaders from the government, ministry, and private sector, to mark the 35th anniversary of Habitat in the Asia Pacific region and its impact.
