Habitat for Humanity Photo Exhibit

For two weeks in December, the University of Rhode Island Libraries Gallery will be displaying a Habitat for Humanity Photo Exhibit, a traveling photo exhibit that shows images of Habitatís work around the world.

Staff photographers captured the images during Habitatís Global Village builds Ė short term mission trips where Habitat supporters build houses with low-income families in need.  The exhibit shows images of Habitatís work in several countries, including the United States, Romania, Northern Ireland, the Philippines, India, Malawi, Ghana, Chile and Costa Rica.

The purpose of the exhibit is to raise awareness of how Habitatís work around the world is closing the door on poverty housing and homelessness. Habitat for Humanity hopes the images encourage new supporters on campuses around this country to partner with us to help low-income families have decent, safe and affordable homes.
