Trinidad & Tobago volunteer trip

Trinidad & Tobago

Home construction

Help build new homes with those in need.

9 days

Trip cost: US$1,890

Travel to Trinidad and Tobago and help Habitat for Humanity build homes for families in need of decent and affordable shelter.

This team will stay near Port of Spain, Trinidad’s bustling capital city. As you build alongside future homeowners, you’ll be welcomed into the community, fill up on traditional food with heavy influences from Indian, African and Creole cuisine, and meet the neighbors whose neighborhood you’re helping to improve. You’ll explore local sights and experience the harmonious cultural diversity of this island nation.

You'll stay in a modest, comfortable hotel with two people in each room. Enjoy lunch on the build site and dinner at the hotel or in local restaurants. As you work alongside skilled masons, you'll assist with essential construction tasks such as mixing cement and mortar, digging foundations, painting, carrying materials and much more.

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 country as 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.
