Minister powers up Habitat for Humanity

Monday, March 20 2017

Minister of Housing and Urban Development Randal Mitchell has committed the ministry and its agencies, the Housing Development Corporation (HDC) and the Land Settlement Agency (LSA), to working with Habitat for Humanity. This during an introductory meeting between the minister Minister of Housing and the visiting Director of Habitat for Humanity International, Latin America and the Caribbean, Monica Ramirez.

During the meeting, the minister acknowledged the work which has been done by Habitat for Humanity in Trinidad and Tobago since 1997 and the charity’s devotion to constructing “simple, decent, and affordable housing to address the issues of poverty and housing in Trinidad and Tobago.” The minister praised its achievement in building five hundred houses for deserving families in this country since 1997.

Ram?rez’ visit to Randall last Monday coincided with Habitat’s 20th Anniversary celebrations which were held last Tuesday.

Also at the meeting was the Acting Permanent Secretary, Marion Hayes; Chairman of Habitat for Humanity TT, Derwin Howell and National Director of Habitat for Humanity TT, Jennifer Massiah. They also discussed current efforts at collaboration and other possible areas for partnership including the development of disaster-resilient housing as is currently being done in Jamaica.

The talks also touched on The New Urban Agenda which was conceptualised at the recently- held United Nations Habitat III conference and Ramirez highlighted the charity’s commitment to this policy. Both the visiting delegation and the minister agreed that the success of the New Urban Agenda lies in its ability to promote community-led development, environmental sustainability and the provision of affordable housing.
