Global Village

What is a Global Village Project?

Global Village projects are trips where volunteers travel to other countries to help with an organized event, such as building a house.   But they can have other purposes such as doing a renovation or setting up a Restore.

Teams  generally have 10-20 people

Team members come from many areas of the country.

Teams have a team leader who has experience with Global Village projects.

Who Pays for This?

You are responsible for your own expenses, such as airfare to and from the destination.

Also, there will typically be costs associated with transportation and housing in the destination country.   These may be coordinated by a team leader, but you would still pay your portion.

When and Where Do They Occur?

These events occur throughout the year, and all over the globe.   

The timing, purpose and location are defined by local Habitat for Humanity affiliates around the globe.

Can I Participate?

Yes.   But positions on the teams are limited, and you must be interviewed.
