Women Build

Build homes with women and children while exploring a new country.

9 days

Trip cost: US$1,760

Join this nine-day Global Village trip building new homes for families in Honduras!

Partner with Habitat for Humanity Honduras to help bring strength, stability and independence to a family in need of a decent place to live. This build aims to empower women and turn them into advocates for decent housing in Honduras. The event gathers local and international groups of women from all walks of life to work together to build homes along with female homeowners.

As you build with the family, you’ll be welcomed into the community. Eat traditional food and meet the neighbors whose community you’re helping to improve. This trip is a unique opportunity to experience life inside the culture.

After volunteering during the day, you will have free time in the evenings for excursions, relaxation and reflection. During your day off, you and your team will explore the breathtaking Lake Yojoa and ancient archeological ruins.

Global Village sends volunteers to build with Habitat for Humanity projects across the world. Get your hands dirty on the work site, meet families whose housing situations have been improved with Habitat’s help, experience the area like an insider and do it all alongside a team of like-minded volunteers. No experience is required! This build is your next step with Habitat to make the world a better place.

Program donation and fundraising

US$1,760

You may fundraise or give the program donation. Fundraising is as easy as telling your friends, family and co-workers about why you build with Habitat for Humanity. They may even ask to join the team! We set you up with a great website and coaching for success.

Champion volunteers set a fundraising goal over the minimum. Every donation you raise keeps Habitat building after your team returns home and helps us serve another family.

The experience that team members will have working, laughing and sharing with the community in which we will be building a safe home with their families will be unforgettable. The last Women build I led was such a great trip for all team members and I know this one will be also.”
