Atlanta Hindu Community Participates in the Interfaith Housing Project of Habitat For Humanity.
Habitat For Humanity has been building homes for the needy for the past few decades. Their Interfaith project brings together people of different faiths in order to promote fellowship and understanding. In 2010, Atlanta’s Hindu community participated for the first time in this effort, working along side volunteers from 11 other faith organizations representing Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Together, these volunteers helped build a house for a family in an environment that provided an opportunity for people of various faiths to come together and work in the service of our community.
