From Kiri Chaboud

Hi! My name is Kiri Chaboud, and I will be traveling to Homabay, Kenya this summer to help build a home for a family. This is an incredible experience and a great opportunity to provide help where it is needed!

About Me

My name is Kiri Chaboud and I am from the Northern Virginia area. I am currently studying Elementary Education and Psychology at High Point University, where I will be entering my senior year next fall. I recently studied abroad in Newcastle, Australia, and it was an incredible experience. This journey has helped me realize that I love traveling and immersing myself in the culture of a new place. My hope for the future is to have a career teaching abroad where the education is needed. I have done fundraising for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in addition to the philanthropy events that my sorority Phi Mu hosts. I am excited to be given this opportunity to travel to Kenya with Habitat for Humanity this summer. I hope to gain great insight and experience on this trip

About Habitat for Humanity International 

Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots effort on a community farm in southern Georgia. The housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in more than 1,300 communities throughout the U.S. and in more than 70 countries. Families and individuals in need of a hand up partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Through shelter, we empower. To learn more, visit
