In 2020, Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver is continuing its commitment to building cross-cultural relationships through its Global Village Trip Program.
This year, you can join us to make a lasting impact building homes in Nepal and Guatemala! These life-changing week-long cultural experiences allow you to address real challenges while immersing yourself in unique international communities.
Habitat for Humanity International's crisis management team is closely monitoring the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. There is a chance that these trips could get suspended, as a precaution to minimize potential exposure to the virus for volunteers, staff, and the vulnerable communities in which we work. Thank you for your understanding and support of Habitat for Humanity’s Global Mission.
Join our longtime partner Habitat Nepal in its Heritage Build. Blessed with a rich diversity of cultures, religions and traditions, Nepal is also challenged by disaster and extreme poverty—with one in two Nepali living in substandard housing. Habitat Metro Denver staff will be among 100 volunteers from U.S. Habitat affiliates joining he Habitat Nepal Heritage Build to erect permanent, disaster-resilient housing for marginalized communities in the Eastern Iowlands of Tarai.
July 25th – August 6th
Guatemala is an amazing country steeped in Mayan culture, beautiful landscapes and kind people. It also faces many political and social challenges; more than 90 percent of rural Guatemalan families cook over an open fire inside the home and, as a result, more than 52% of Guatemalans suffer from respiratory disease. By joining this trip to Solola, Guatemala, you will build smokeless stoves and latrines alongside Habitat for Humanity Guatemala to help families save more than $700 a year in fuel costs. Apply Here!
