Looking Back Through Our Century: July 1993
In the summer of 1993, many Manitobans became familiar with Habitat for Humanity when former US President Jimmy Carter came to Winnipeg to support the building of 19 homes for low income families to own. Our Association members were among the seven hundred volunteers who picked up hammers and saws for the official launch of the Habitat for Humanity project in Winnipeg. This is just one of the many events where our volunteers have given their time to make life work better in Manitoba. To learn more about this build and other volunteer opportunities, read the news story.

Prizes are available to all residents of Manitoba therefore share with friends and family to get them learning about engineering and geoscience in Manitoba! See the news story for more information.
