Trip By: The Fuller Center for Housing
Location: Armenia, Eastern Europe
When: Customizable: May-Sep 2019
Spend one – two weeks volunteering and touring Armenia which is a land of rich history, beautiful mountainous scenery, and fascinating cultural heritage.
Approximately 65,000 families are in need of housing in Armenia, with many living in metal shipping containers called domics or living in the basements of half built houses due to not being able to finish them because of the sudden economic downturn in the 1990s. Since the launch of the Fuller Center Armenia in 2008, they have been able to provide safe, decent, and affordable housing to more then 450 families in 11 communities.
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. On your days off you’ll go touring to see the countryside and various historical areas.
If you have a heart for combining service, traveling and experiencing new cultures than this trip is for you!
