Abstract/Summary

Habitat for Humanity Global Village is an organization that continuously sends volunteers to work on construction projects around the world. My team and I were chosen to go to a village in Bangalore, India, where we dug and poured home foundations for three families in need. Given the opportunity to combine my love for construction and my passion for helping those in need, I was certain that this was the senior project for me. I wanted the capstone of my college educational experience to reflect a hands-on approach, where I had the opportunity to make a difference and see an achievement at the end of it. During my trip I was immersed in the culture and welcomed by the local villagers who were kind and generous. I learned about Indian culture, tried different spicy foods, and above all discovered different methods of construction.
