Come to Armenia for a 10-14 day trip to build a home with and a for a family in need, interact with Armenian families, and see the ancient country of Noah’s ark! Global Builders work shoulder to shoulder with the homeowners and local volunteers in a spirit of friendship and unity, sharing the same enthusiasm and emotions. The Global Builders program becomes a platform of interaction between the guests and the local community, and helps strengthen the cultural and spiritual bridge between the local and international communities.
No construction skills are necessary.
Global Builders construction includes works like mixing sand and cement, pouring water, preparing the mixture and carrying with buckets (as light as possible), carrying tufa blocks, plastering and painting the walls, sanding windows, doors and walls, and preparing an insulation layer for the roof.
