The Global Village program provides opportunities for people of different cultures to live and work together in a spirit of partnership. Team members experience firsthand the burden of substandard housing. They learn what Habitat for Humanity International is doing to address the issue and how all people can help. They meet and get to know Habitat partners from all walks of life. As our understanding of culture expands, we begin to realize that cultural traits are not right or wrong, but are a framework through which we understand the world around us. We are called to minister to others within the context of their individual cultures and likewise, through this unique GV experience, our hosts are called to minister to us. It is our hope that team members will look to the GV work trip as an opportunity to learn and contribute while expanding their knowledge of unfamiliar cultures and developing their own spiritual identity.
