Ballymena Church Members Forum is partnering with Habitat For Humanity NI to send a volunteer team to India at the beginning of August.

There are still places available for team members but the closing date for registration is January 31.

You don’t need any special skills to take part and Habitat co-ordinates everything to give you a safe and rewarding experience.

More than half of the Indian population are forced to go to the toilet in the open.

Habitat NI is partnering with Habitat India to provide new homes and proper toilets for vulnerable communities in Delhi and Rajasthan.

By volunteering for this team you will be part of this life-changing work that brings hope, uplifts families and offers a firm foundation for the future.

The team from Ballymena will be working in a resettlement colony like Savda Ghevra which is home to 25,000 families.

Many of these people were forcibly evicted in preparation for the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

The team is planned to leave on July 30 and return on August 12.

The cost of the trip will be £2100 and you will be expected to raise as much of that as you can, although Ballymena Church Members Forum will be subsidising the cost to some extent.

If you are interested in being a part of this team please contact Wendy of Ballymena Church Members Forum on 07790059481 before January 31.
