Al Sanabel, Jordan
Trip cost: US$1,690
Join a group of dedicated volunteers on a Global Village trip as you help build strength and stability for a family in Jordan.
You’ll do more than build a physical home, you’ll also gain insight into the complexities of Middle Eastern culture by dining with Jordanian families each night. Meet the local community and explore the rich history of the region with a visit to nearby archaeological sites, enjoy authentic Jordanian barbecue and pick tomatoes fresh from the farm with your teammates.
Teams will stay at a guesthouse with separate communal sleeping for men and women. At dinner, try traditional Jordanian dishes or cook as a group with food you buy at the market.
Join this trip today and prepare yourself for an authentic Middle Eastern experience in the rural northern valley of Jordan. You’ll learn how the current political and economic unrest in the area affect families living in poverty and how Habitat is serving homeowners across the country.
- Friday: Depart. Grab your packed bags and head towards Jordan.
- Saturday: Arrive. Arrive in Amman. Habitat for Humanity picks you up at the airport and introduces you to your team at dinner.
- Sunday: Learn. Travel to the affiliate community, where Habitat staff will share about our impact in Jordan and brief the team on your project.
- Monday-Thursday: Build. Serve on the work site throughout the day with free time, team meetings and cultural activities in the evenings. Celebrate on Thursday with a dedication ceremony.
- Friday: Goodbyes. Continue your journey in the Middle East independently or depart for home.

Chuck Peterson will tell you more about this trip and how you can join today!
When asked of his fondest Global Village memory, Chuck said, “When we arrived in the village we would be building in Myanmar, the entire community came to welcome us with a local band and dancers. The experience of getting to truly know and work with people of different cultures and working alongside your teammates from all walks of life make this a true example of traveling with a purpose.”
