Global Builders - El Salvador

Save to Favorites

The Fuller Center for Housing

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 3 people are interested

Take Global Builder trips to El Salvador, which is just a short and affordable flight from the US. You can help build homes with local families, learn about El Salvador, and make cross-cultural friendships. The trips also support the local economy, provide jobs to locals, and offer life-changing experiences to everyone involved.

Global Builders has successfully built a 40-home community in San Luis Talpa, and is now working on building homes in the hills of western El Salvador. They are working in partnership with People Helping People on building a 14 family house and economic development project in an area near Juayua. The beneficiaries will be families living and working on a coffee farm.

In 2016, they built a community of about 90 homes in Nuevo Cuscatlan, a community near San Salvador. The community stands out for its low crime rates and good governance in a country plagued by intensifying gang violence.

Mission Statement

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.

Description

Foundational Principles

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.
