Tithing is a biblical principle that calls on believers to return the first fruits of their bounty back to God. Habitat for Humanity expects all local affiliates to implement this by sharing at least ten percent of our resources across national borders to help meet the extreme need for housing globally.
Our vision of “a world where everyone has a decent place to live” extends beyond Wake County. Affordability is a critical issue in Wake County. Globally, housing needs are more diverse, with challenges ranging from land tenure to access to safe drinking water. Habitat Wake has built 285 homes outside the United States and ranked number one among 1,400 Habitat affiliates in global building during the fiscal year ending June 30, 2017. In 2015, Habitat Wake committed to reaching a biblical (10%) global tithe by 2018.
In 2018, a team of volunteers will travel with Habitat Wake to La Ceiba, Honduras (February 3 - 11) and Madisi, Malawi (June 1 -10). If you're interested in joining us on one or both of these important global village trips, please contact Gabi McDermott.
You can help us build globally! A donation to the Global Impact Fund is invested directly into building a home in one of our partner countries -- Cambodia, Honduras or Malawi. Help us achieve our vision of a world where everyone has a safe, decent place to live.
