Global Village Trips

Habitat may work around the corner from you, but we also work around the world, and we need your help!

Habitat for Humanity International's Global Village program offers volunteers the unique opportunity to immerse themselves in a foreign country, gaining an inside perspective into the culture, while working with the local community to build safe, affordable housing for families in need of adequate shelter. This fall, San Diego Habitat for Humanity is hosting its first-ever Global Village trip to Chiapas, Mexico!
