Habitat for Humanity Trinidad and Tobago (HHTT) used the small grant it received as a Catalyst in the #CSOs4GoodGov project to implement the advocacy action project, “A Public Awareness Campaign to promote Hurricane Resilient Housing Practices and Healthy Housing Habits”.
Targeted at T&T’s autistic, deaf and hard of hearing communities, HHTT’s project promoted resilient construction techniques and healthy housing habits ahead of the 2019 hurricane season. This HHTT campaign empowered people within T&T’s disability community to take proactive action to prepare for incidents arising from both man-made and natural hazards. The general and disability publics enthusiastically received the guidance and support on Healthy Housing Habits and Disaster Mitigation and Response. Seven workshops were held for vulnerable groups (persons with disabilities), 72 radio advertisements, 4253 reached through social media, 15 disability groups engaged, and 217 persons engaged.
