Rajan is a rising Senior at The Potomac School in McLean, Virginia. He has worked with Habitat for Humanity many times over the last few years. During his time with Habitat, he has provided research about the viability of converting shipping containers to homes for affordable housing, worked with Habitat on their social media outreach and messaging, organized a furniture drive at his high school for the local Habitat ReStore, and volunteered at the Habitat ReStore. He has always wanted to be able to work on the construction site to help build houses, and after finally turning 18 years old on August 19, he was able to come and work on the house at Hawthorne St., Landover, starting on his birthday. He worked with the crew onsite to install appliances and trim, put up door frames, and in this photo, he is beginning the installation of a pantry. He hopes to be able to return again soon to continue working on the house!
Rajan – thank you for your volunteer service and commitment to healthy and affordable housing!
