SIXTH GLOBAL BUILDERS

A 12-member team of Global Builders from the USA led by Kaye Hooker and Pamela Bland arrived on October 22, 2017. They were with us until October 29, 2017. During their stay, the members worked with and for two of our homeowner families in completing their Fuller homes - one in Erayancode and the other at Alathur both being located about 20 miles apart in Trivandrum district. The team witnessed the dedication of the two houses they had worked on. They also attended the Orientation and the Farewell meets. On the eve of their departure there was a get-together with the TFCH personnel and their families. Meanwhile, a rest and recreation program including a one-day house boat cruise had also been scheduled for the team. The whole team felt very satisfied with the food, accommodation and transportation provided throughout. Except for a couple of inevitable shortcomings, as pointed out by the team in their feedback, the mission of the Global Builders was found to be successful. We thank both the leaders and each other member of the team for their volunteerism, love, understanding and cooperation as well as the FCFH for sending this incredibly  dynamic team to the TFCH.
