Santa Rosa de Copan
Trip cost: US$1,660
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 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
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.
Volunteers are encouraged to 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.

Meals and accommodations
The team will stay in modest, comfortable hotels in double-occupancy rooms. Lunch will be on the build site, while breakfast and dinner will be at the hotel or local restaurants.
Type of work for volunteers
Some of the tasks include moving dirt and bricks, digging for septic tanks, bending rebar, mixing and pouring concrete, and laying block foundation. All tools and construction site materials will be provided by the affiliate, and a professional construction leader will always be present on-site.
We will connect you with a team leader within two business days. The team leader will tell you more about the build and learn about you. After speaking with the team leader, donate or fundraise your deposit to secure your spot on the team. The team leader will help you prepare and lead you during the trip.
Your team leader, Emily Squires, will lead this team in the field and would love to speak with you. Email Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When asked about previous Global Village experiences, Emily said, “My favorite Global Village memories are always the opportunities I get to connect with the community and host families we work with. I love talking to them and learning about their stories and their families. These encounters for me truly illustrate Habitat’s goal to come alongside partner families in the construction of their new home. This will be my third trip to Honduras and I am excited to have you join me!"
