Habitat for Humanity, a renowned international non-profit organization who aids communities around the world in the building and improving of living conditions, together with Proman Trinidad and Tobago, an integrated industrial group and a global leader in natural gas derived products and services, has both partnered with the Trinidad and Tobago Regiment in making sustainable housing and development a matter of national action in Trinidad and Tobago.

A six-week Home Construction Training Exercise has been launched at the 1st Engineer Battalion, Cumuto Barracks, under the command of Lt. Col. J. Hills, with the intent to formally train a select group of Soldiers on how to construct, rehabilitate and preserve homes, from the foundation up. This will be integral as the rainy season approaches, where the Engineer battalion remains one of the nation’s first responders providing engineering support, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief nationwide.
