August 1, 2014: Habitat for Humanity International’s Global Village program provides individuals and groups with the opportunity to volunteer internationally.
As a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, we support the work Habitat is doing all over the world to help families in need. We believe it is important for us to stay connected to the vital work being done in other countries and to learn about the challenges faced by families in other parts of the world as they struggle to gain access to a safe, affordable place to live.
Every two years HFHGP aims to bring volunteers and staff members from the Pittsburgh area together to form a Global Village team to serve with an international affiliate and expand their engagement with Habitat for Humanity beyond our borders. In May of 2015 we will be organizing our affiliate’s second GV team which will travel to Romania for an 11 day service experience. This is a great opportunity to meet new people, travel abro ad, and do meaningful service...no prior construction experience is necessary. Anyone interested in more information about the trip or joining the team should contact Team Leader Derek Morris

Global Village 2013 - Brazil
In 2013, HFHGP organized our first GV trip where 12 volunteers served with the HFH office in Brazil. The team helped members of the local community build two new homes and finish two more while learning about the Brazilian culture and the particular challenges to affordable housing for the Brazilian people.
