A Message From Gary Pierson

I'm going back to El Salvador!
Please give if you can!

We will be building in the region of La Libertad in El Salvador. working alongside the homebuyers and Spanish-speaking local masons.
Homes are small — tiny by our standards, a few hundred square feet.
On average, a single-family home in El Salvador costs about $7,000.
Modest by American standards, the home consists of two to three rooms with simple electrical and plumbing systems.
For families earning only $6.25 to $25 a day, it's a home of infinite value and opportunity.
Each house allows families to move out of mud, cardboard or tin shanties and into decent, affordable homes that are built to keep them safe during El Salvador’s frequent earthquakes and inclement weather.

As you build, you’ll be welcomed into the community. Learn to make pupusas and try other typical foods, meet the neighbors whose community you’re helping to improve and explore local sites. This trip is a unique opportunity to experience life inside the culture.

Global Village sends volunteers to build with Habitat for Humanity projects across the world. Get your hands dirty on the work site, meet families whose housing situations have been improved with Habitat’s help, experience the country like an insider and do it all alongside a team of like-minded volunteers. No experience is required! This build is your next step with Habitat to make the world a better place.
