Short-Term Volunteer Trips to Build Homes with Families around the World

See the real world off the beaten path as you immerse yourself in a different culture, all while partnering in a thoughtful way with the world's poor. Join a team of soon-to-be friends or bring your own group — either way, it’s a mission trip that will change your life, too.

Why Global Builders

Focused on People

Affordable

Quality Experience

More than building houses, discover meaning in life, grow closer to God, build team spirit, and change the world while changing yourself.

We strive to keep costs low while still contributing significantly to the community. You can even use our fundraising pages to cover your entire trip fee!

It’s not 5-star hotels, but it’s meaningful service with real families. We don’t do make-work. No wonder over 80% of our groups return for future trips.

Sustainable Impact

Locally Driven

Personalized Attention

A dry, healthy and permanent home has been proven to improve health and education outcomes. Our pay-it-forward model gives dignity and sustainability to the process. Learn more about our impact.

We work where we’re invited, supporting local initiatives. All projects are led by locals. Each trip is designed to create local jobs and support their economy.

We love our volunteers and help each team get the experience it’s seeking. Each Team Leader has the opportunity to include certain R&R opportunities.
