Michael Stearney, Global Village Team Leader
I’m a Global Village leader because I’ve seen GV teams change the lives of families, and they have changed my life too. My first GV experience was in Quezon City, Philippines in August of 2014. In January of 2015, I traveled to El Salvador on another GV trip. In 2017, I am excited to lead a return trip to the Bisteckville community in Metro Manila, Philippines. I am looking for 12 adventurous souls to join me as we continue the work of converting poverty housing in this urban area to modern, safe, affordable, and durable apartments for the families living there.
Please consider joining our Global Village team in the Philippines on February 4 – 18, 2017. The cost for this trip is US$2100; airfare and entry/exit fees are not included. That cost is tax-deductible in most cases. About half covers your expenses, and half is a donation to Habitat for Humanity’s work to build safe, decent housing. Many GV participants fund raise nearly the entire trip cost!
If you decide to join us, please confirm your place on the team by submitting a nonrefundable and nontransferable $350 deposit in the next few weeks. You’re welcome to fundraise this deposit, so if you need a little longer, that’s fine. If you have participated in Global Village trips within the last 3 years, you have a Habitat ID and you will need it when you submit your deposit.
If you are new to Global Village, information on the Global Village application can be found at https://www.habitat.org/gv/how_to_apply.aspx. A Habitat ID will be issued to you as part of the application process.
