Global Builders teams will work in the village of Trishuli, about 50 miles north of bustling Kathmandu. Set in the Himalayan foothills with the world’s tallest mountains as a distant backdrop, you’ll be working in one of the most picturesque locations on earth. Volunteers will get the unique opportunity to work side by side with the homeowner family and other locals.
The Fuller Center in Nepal is committed to serving families and making it possible for them to have homes which are safe and affordable. One way the local Fuller Center is making waves is by making and utilizing concrete blocks, which is a new building technology for Nepal. These blocks cost much less then traditional fired bricks and are even better for the environment. Trishuli was one of the areas greatly affected by the April 2015 earthquake. However, all of the homes the Fuller Center built did survive and are all in excellent condition. Moving foward, we have started building more compact homes of about 300 sq ft so we can have a greater reach now that the need for safe, decent homes has increased due to the earthquake. They include two bedrooms, a kitchen and a bath with a shower and a squat toilet, which is more popular in Asia.
If you have a heart for combining service, traveling and experiencing new cultures then this trip is for you!

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.
