PHOTO GALLERY: First Global Builders service trip to Madagascar
We’ve had our very first Fuller Center Global Builders team to work in Madagascar! The team’s farewell ceremony included a traditional Malagasy dance with locals in which they hold hands and express “we are one.”
“Fuller Center Madagascar is setting itself apart as an outstanding program,” said Ryan Iafigliola, Fuller Center for Housing’s Vice President of International Programs. “In just its fifth year with us, it became our No. 3 home builder in 2021 — building very complete and cost-effective homes in a country that greatly needs it. But it would be very difficult to sustain and grow further without more outside support, and Global Builders teams will bring exactly that.
“Beyond practical benefits, there’s also a joy and excitement that bringing people together from across the world adds to a project, and we’re thrilled to begin having that in the fascinating land of Madagascar,” he added.
