An uplifting trip: Habitat for Humanity Portugal

Nine Penn State students from three different campuses — Schuylkill, University Park and Harrisburg — were charged with helping to build the exterior walls for a home of three in the city of Amarante in the northern Portuguese district of Porto, where they discovered, “Te deixas sempre um pouco de ti e lleas also contigo” — "You always leave a bit of you and always take something with you." The students traveled to Portugal as part of a Habitat for Humanity International Global Village Trip to Amarante, Portugal, May 5-14, thanks to a grant from Penn State's Student Engagement Network.
