About Global Village

Home > Volunteer > About Global Village

Help build a home for a family in need using your own hands through the Global Village program.

Over just one week, you’ll work with a team of like-minded volunteers from all walks of life, home partner families and local labourers to help construct a new home for a family living in poverty.

No prior experience is required, and there is a job for every skill and fitness level. Depending on the country you visit, you might be mixing concrete, weaving bamboo, laying bricks, digging trenches or painting.

You can travel and build in unique locations across Asia Pacific and beyond when you volunteer with us. By working alongside a family, you give them an opportunity to be independent and have healthier, happier, more secure futures. Their lives will be forever changed and your hard work will continue to have a lasting impact long after you have returned home.

Volunteer with your friends and family, school group or workplace for a team building experience with a difference. Please note that the minimum volunteer age is 15, and those under 18 require a guardian.

Sign up today to help build strength, stability and independence.
