About the volunteers
For this year’s weeklong Carter Work Project, President and Mrs. Carter will join approximately 600 volunteers to build 100 earthquake-resistant homes in Léogâne. Among the volunteers are longtime, skilled laborers, some of whom have taken part in more than a dozen Carter Projects, including last year’s project in Haiti, and many newcomers who will learn building skills as they help Habitat reach its long-range goal of serving 50,000 Haitian families by 2015.

About the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project:
Since 1984, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, have dedicated one week a year to building alongside Habitat for Humanity volunteers and partner homeowners around the world.
In 2011, volunteers at Habitat for Humanity’s 28th annual Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project — along with volunteers from the Irish nonprofit Haven — helped build 155 permanent houses in the Santo community of Léogâne, Haiti, about 18 miles from Port-au-Prince and considered to be the epicenter of the 2010 earthquake.
This year, the Carter Work Project returns to Haiti Nov. 23 – Dec. 1 to strengthen and support Habitat’s ongoing work to help families left homeless by the earthquake. The project is part of a larger Habitat shelter program funded by the Multilateral Investment Fund of the Inter-American Development Bank and many other donors.
The Carter Work Project will be the culmination of a two-month observance of the need for safe, decent and affordable shelter, and the pivotal role of housing in community development, beginning with special events on World Habitat Day, Monday, Oct. 1.
