People across the globe are using the Fuller Center’s partnership housing principles to transform their communities. We believe that the most appropriate and effective solutions come when communities create locally-led and locally-driven projects. We call them Covenant Partners because our relationship principles are codified in a simple 2-page covenant agreement.
Our work is an opportunity for partnership not only to the world’s poor, but to its rich. Clarence Jordan, the Christian New Testament Greek scholar who mentored our founder Millard Fuller, described the situation this way: “What the poor need is not charity, but capital, not caseworkers but coworkers. And what the rich need is a wise, honorable, and just way of divesting themselves of their overabundance.”
Our international partners provide that opportunity to give wisely of your financial capital, and you can even see firsthand how your funds help by joining one of our Global Builders volunteer teams. Global Builders teams lend their hands in the construction of homes as they immerse themselves in the culture for 1-3 weeks.
Our work is fully reliant upon contributions from individuals and churches. Together, we have completed over a thousand homes outside of the U.S. as of June 2015. Please join us as giving partners or Global Builders, or learn more at the country links below.
