about global village
Global Village is a Habitat for Humanity International (HfHI) program that creates opportunities for volunteers to build overseas for one to three weeks with families in need and local volunteers. For every home built in Pinellas County, Habitat Pinellas contributes 75% of our annual tithe contribution to Habitat Malawi, with the remaining 25% determined by management to support HfHI’s effort to eliminate poverty housing around the world. In April 2013, Habitat Pinellas organized its first ever Global Village trip to Guatemala with 13 volunteers. Since then, we've completed trips to Malawi, Costa Rica and Nicaragua.
Please note: Because of the strenuous tasks involved with build trips in hot, foreign climates, you must be in excellent health and outstanding physical condition to be considered for the team.
