    Thirteen students from NHTI, a community college in Concord, are spending all week here, working on unfinished Habitat for Humanity houses.
    Volunteers say their week of work is more tiring than a normal college students relaxing Spring Break, but they also say it's much more rewarding.
    Heidi Schmidt, one of the volunteers from New Hampshire, says, "It gives you a fulfilling experience. It's always nice to go somewhere and experience another culture and be able to relax. When we come back from our Spring Break, we're exhausted but we're rejuvenated because we know we've made a drastic impact on someone else's life."
    The volunteers are working on the 99th and 100th houses, which are the final two houses in Habitat's current subdivision.
