9 days

Trip cost: US$1,960

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.

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 days off, you and your team will explore the Pineapple Plantation and the Cayos Cochinos marine reserve.

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$1,960

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.
