Tithing is a biblical principle that calls on believers to return the first fruits of their bounty back to God. Habitat for Humanity encourages all United States affiliates to share resources across national borders to help meet the extreme need for housing globally, and work toward a goal of tithing 10 percent of unrestricted income.
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's tithe has built 644 homes outside the United States as of June 30, 2018. Habitat Wake ranks number one among 1,400 Habitat affiliates in global building.
Habitat Wake primarily supports construction of Habitat homes in Cambodia, Honduras and Malawi and organizes mission trips to at least one of those countries annually.
In 2018 and 2019, the following Global Trips are being led by Habitat Wake or Habitat Wake partners:
- Buenos Aires, Argentina, November 3-11, 2018. Contact Michelle Pavliv for details.
- Cambodia, January 17-27, 2019. Contact Rachel Zeitler for details.
- Honduras, March 2-10, 2019. Contact Sarah Adams for details.
- El Salvador, May 25-June 2, 2019, Contact John Budway for details.
Your financial support also 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.
