Travel to Ghana on a Global Builders Trip with The Fuller Center for Housing and help the organization build safe, decent, and affordable homes for members of a small community. Volunteers get the chance to work side by side with the homeowners and other locals in building these new homes. Apart from providing safe housing, the program also provides residents of Agomeda with job opportunities, boost the local economy, and create a life-changing experience for all people involved.
Ghana is known today for the friendliness of its people, the warm welcome given to visitors, and its cultural uniqueness and identity. Ghana stands as a stable, peace-loving nation that is the perfect introduction to a fascinating and beautiful continent. Even within Africa, Ghana is known as a desirable place to visit and vacation.
The Fuller Center is building a community that partners with low-income working families who offer their sweat equity in helping to build their homes and pay back the cost on terms they can afford with no profit or interest charged. The houses are comprised of a porch, living room, two bedrooms, kitchen, and toilet and bath.

About The Fuller Center for Housing
701 S. Martin Luther King Blvd., Americus, GA 31719, US
The Fuller Center for Housing, faith-driven and Christ-centered, promotes collaborative and innovative partnerships with individuals and organizations in an unrelenting quest to provide adequate shelter for all people in need worldwide.
We at the Fuller Center for Housing believe that:
We are part of a God movement, and movements don't just stop.
We have been called to this housing ministry; we didn't just stumble into it.
We are unashamedly Christian, and enthusiastically ecumenical.
We aren't a church but we are a servant of the Church.
We are faith driven, knowing that after we've done all we can do the Lord will help finish the job--something that requires us to stretch beyond our rational reach.
We are a grassroots ministry, recognizing that the real work happens on the ground in communities around the world through our covenant partners, so a large, overseeing bureaucracy isn’t needed.
We try to follow the teachings of the Bible and believe that it says that we shouldn't charge interest of the poor, so we don't. Government has a role in our work in helping set the stage, but that we shouldn't look to it as a means to fund the building of home.
