Sri Lanka is a country that had been ravaged by a brutal civil war from the early 1980s to May of 2009 as well as a tsunami in 2004. Both events have destroyed lives, homes, and has stalled economic growth. The Fuller Center has partnered with the United Christian Fellowship to help build safe, decent, and affordable homes for families in need. Many of these families live in slums or wooden shacks and during the rainy season these shacks get washed away or left in worse condition.
Participants will have the unique opportunity to work side by side with the homeowners and other locals to build these new homes. In addition to providing safe housing, these trips provide locals with jobs, help support the local economy and create a life-changing experience for all involved.
If you have a heart for combining service, traveling and experiencing new cultures than 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.
