Excited for meaningful service and learning but short on time? This is it! The program is compressed into roughly 7 days. The culmination of the program will be building houses for villagers who are enrolled in a Tabitha micro-savings program. Families inch their way out of poverty through the combination of savings, sustainable agriculture, micro-enterprise, and a heavy dosage of hard work and commitment. Our team of volunteers will learn about the full gamut of this process leading to empowerment and self-reliance. The homes we help the villagers build is a joint effort to celebrate their accomplishments–helping families get off the streets and into their very own home–forging unbreakable bonds and partnerships for years to come.
For our service learning experiences, we partner with forPEACE. To learn more about why we do this program and to see a day-to-day working itinerary, follow this link: http://forpeace.us/service_learning/2014/hb.html
