There are more than one million orphan and vulnerable children currently living and dying in extreme poverty in Malawi. About 4 out of 5 families live in substandard homes. To address this need, Habitat Malawi has joined forces with ZOE Malawi, a national program of the global Zoe orphan empowerment organization started and based out of the North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church with growing ecumenical support. Habitat’s vision of all people—including the most vulnerable—having a decent place to live is becoming a reality through this partnership which includes improved housing by Habitat and a three-year empowerment program provided by ZOE, which has a goal of enabling orphans to never need charity again.
Join our 2018 global village trip to Malawi June 1-10!
Habitat Wake will host its second global village trip to Malawi in 2018. The team will travel to Malawi and build new brick homes with metal roofs and concrete floors -- a vast upgrade from the current living conditions in the villages.
Your team will be guided by skilled masons to build a safe, decent house from the foundation. Typical works includes mixing mortar and concrete, carrying construction materials, fixing chicken wires, digging foundations, making bricks, and carrying water.
Trip cost is approximately $1,312.50 USD, not including airfare (approximately $2,000) and optional $600 safari in Zambia.
