Constructing the Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity El Salvador Community
About this blog
Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity is a partnership between Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and Habitat for Humanity International.
This blog is a record of the 2009 Thrivent Builds Worldwide Financial Representative Ambassador Program (FRAP) trip to build homes in the Thrivent Builds El Salvador Community--called Villa Esperanza, or Hope Village. By mid-2010, this new community will be complete with up to 75 new houses for Salvadoran families--financed by $1.3 million from Thrivent Financial and built by over 50 teams of Thrivent members, Lutherans and other volunteers working with Habitat El Salvador. This community will change the lives of the new homeowner families, and this experience will also alter our lives as volunteers!
This team is being lead by Anita Sites and Rusty Dicks and includes over 30 Thrivent Financial representatives and employees, specially selected to become ambassadors for this program.
