“It was a pleasure coming here. I think all the members are proud of themselves for assisting in this project, I think it was a great experience as well….”, the words of Golden Jaguars’ striker, Vurlon Mills, who was among six team members assisting in the construction of a house being built by Habitat For Humanity Guyana Inc. (HFHGY)The partnership between the Guyana Football Federation (GFF), via the Golden Jaguars, and HFHGY saw the team members, last Saturday, assisting in the laying of boards for the floor of the house owned by Ms. Lynette Cambridge at Farm, East Bank Demerara.The work was supervised by the on-site contractor and HFHGY’s staff,including Nakasi Fortune, Volunteer Programme Assistant.The collaboration, the first of its kind with HFHGY, is part of the public relations programme being pursued by the GFF as a lead-up to the 3rd round matches of the Scotia Bank-CFU 2016 Caribbean Men’s Cup Championship scheduled for Suriname (Oct 8) and the Leonora Stadium, Guyana (Oct 11).The other team members who participated in the HFHGY partnership were Andrew Nestor, Cash London, Pernel Schultz, Colin Nelson and Daniel Wilson.Habitat for Humanity mobilizes local leadership and resources to help people access decent and affordable homes. Typically, volunteers and home partners work together to build or renovate houses. In this process, Habitat forgoes making a profit on loans through interest, putting value instead on meeting human needs.The Golden Jaguars will today journey to the mining town where they will be featured in a caravan in the Town after which they will head to the Mackenzie Sports Club ground for a light training session. Today’s activity kicks off at 16:30 hrs and all are invited to meet and interact with the players and also watch them train.
