Global Village is our international volunteer programme bringing teams of people together to build and improve homes all around the world. A Global Village trip offers the opportunity to travel to another country to work hand-in-hand with people around the world to help build simple, decent homes.
Covid-19 restrictions mean our Global Village programme is sadly on hold until further notice.
