GLOBAL VILLAGE TRIPS
Globetrotting with St. Vrain Habitat - what it's like on Global Village Trips. Thank you Lachlan Quintana for graciously allowing St. Vrain Habitat to share this video. Bring on the epic travel sizzle!
Habitat International is committed to building cross-cultural relationships through the Global Village Volunteer program. Our vision for St. Vrain Valley Global Village Trips is to demonstrate faith in action.
This is accomplished by:
1) Supporting the work of Habitat Tithe Partners
We visit to support the work of the local affiliate. We do not come to fix processes or teach “better” practices but to work alongside our brothers and sisters who have been and will continue to do great work in the process of eliminating substandard housing.
2) Energizing our local affiliate
We will increase local participation from those more inclined to support international development and help those in our community see the need and work in our own neighborhoods, as well as internationally.
3) Building relationships with those we support financially
Our tithe supports international affiliates by financial means, but our relationship and our global story will only increase in authenticity with relationships built by working side by side. Through meaningful relationships built on the trips, we will increase our ability to describe the need and promote the work of our tithe partners.
Upcoming Trip to Lesotho!
