When you volunteer with Habitat for Humanity on a Global Village trip, you become one of thousands of volunteers worldwide who have given of their time, energy and resources to partner with families in need of decent and affordable shelter for nearly 25 years. Your contribution to the construction of the partner family's new home not only impacts them, but also adds to the vitality of the community. The effects will be felt throughout generations. Whether the construction of the home calls for cinder blocks, clay bricks or wood, the foundation that a new home gives the family that will dwell within it is solid. The security that it gives the children that will eat, sleep, play, learn and grow within it is priceless. The opportunity it gives families to serve in their communities and pay their blessing forward are endless. People like you make affordable home ownership a reality for so many working families who are looking for a hand up, not a hand out. Experience the adventure of a new country while sharing the experience of love in action. When you volunteer on a Habitat Global Village trip, you work alongside partner families and volunteers from all works of life using the construction techniques of the native country. We'll also spend time within the community exploring the culture through native foods, music, dance, history tours and other cultural activities. You become more than a volunteer or a tourist - you become a member of our Global Village family, which transforms the lives of those living in poverty housing conditions around the world. You can get involved by joining my Global Village team to Bolivia and help two families build their simple, decent and affordable homes in June 2014.
