HABITAT FOR HUMANITY CANADA WELCOMES JULIAN FANTINO AS MINISTER OF INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION

Syndicated from: HFHC News

Congratulations to The Honourable Julian Fantino on his recent appointment as Minister of International Cooperation. Today, Habitat for Humanity Canada is partnering with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) to rebuild Haiti, helping improve the living conditions of some of the Western Hemisphere's poorest slum dwellers. The first and soon to be completed Habitat for Humanity Canada recovery project is primarily focused on repairs and retrofits to existing houses damaged by the January 2010 earthquake. Slum residents are being trained in construction techniques so that they can assist professionals in the repairs of their own homes. This is also providing men and women with job skills for their future livelihood and the nation's microenterprise development. Habitat for Humanity Canada is pleased that the success of this project has led to CIDA's support of a second outcomes-based project in Haiti, focusing on expanding the training outcomes achieved previously. Although Habitat for Humanity Canada's partnership with CIDA only dates back to 2007, staff look forward to many more years of partnership, working with Julian Fantino's team of dedicated development professionals around the world.
