Nicaragua:Build Shelter

4 of 11

In the rural village of San Rafael del Sur, 95 percent of homes are rapidly deteriorating, sanitation is poor, and clean sources of water are constantly compromised. But by volunteering through Habitat for Humanity’s 10-day Global Village Program, you can help transform the locals’ circumstances by building a community of 50 two-bedroom homes made from sturdy, weather-resistant materials. If you’re looking to make a longer-lasting impact, apply for a six- to 12-month program, where you can rebuild villages in Haiti, become an emergency responder in Slovakia, or assist with microfinance projects in South Africa.
