Will 2017 be the year you take a trip that changes your life?

“I’m a Global Village (GV) leader because I am passionate about connecting people from our affiliate with the work Habitat does internationally. My last GV experience was in Guatemala and as I worked alongside the local volunteers, I felt really lucky to be involved in an organization that is changing lives, in my own community and abroad. I became a team leader so I could help more volunteers gain an understanding of the impact Habitat has around the world.” ~ Joel Johnson, GV Trip Leader (pictured R)

GV Volunteer Handbook

If YOU would like the opportunity to help build houses and change lives with Habitat, experience another culture, meet like-minded people and do work that warms your heart and fills your soul, consider joining our Global Village Trip to Guatemala this fall.

DATE: October 21-29, 2017
LOCATION: Rabinal, Guatemala (in the department of Baja Verapaz)
The cost for this trip is $1,602.50. That covers a significant donation to Habitat for Humanity’s work building safe, decent housing, as well as your accommodations, meals, in-country transportation, travel-medical insurance, and cultural activities. (Airfare and entry/exit fees are not included.) The full program cost is tax-deductible, in most cases.
DEPOSIT & PAYMENT: All payments for the trip should be made through Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity. There will be an option to pay on the Habitat International website when signing up, but we need all payments to be made to us in order to receive a tithe credit for the organization. A check is the preferred method of payment; however we can process credit card payments as well. If paying by credit card, we will need to charge an additional 2.5% to partially cover the cost applied by the credit card company. We will require a $250 deposit to ensure your slot on the team. This should be made at the same time or shortly after signing up online to guarantee your place. Full payment for the trip will be due by August 6th 2017. If payment has not been received by the due date the spot will be offered to the first person on wait list. Asheville Habitat will provide a form for the tax deductible portion of the program cost.
