On October 30, former US President Jimmy Carter invited Brad Pitt to the hill-station of Lonavala -- approximately 100 kilometres from Mumbai, India -- to build houses as part of the 23rd Jimmy Carter Work Project (JCWP) in association with Habitat for Humanity.

A day before, the former President and Nobel Peace Prize-winner inaugurated the project at a grand ceremony in Patan, near Lonavala.

Brad Pitt is currently on a film shooting schedule in India and people were surprised to see him turn up and volunteer in the building process, as did many other volunteers assisting in President Carter's project.
