Be a part of the journey

During this trip, you'll experience firsthand the effects a Habitat home can have on families in the Philippines. You can see how Habitat is serving families outside of the busy city of Manila and designing housing solutions for island communities that are often susceptible to fierce storms. On this trip, your team will construct a row house from concrete blocks in an existing Habitat community in Mindoro.
The Philippines, the third-largest English-speaking country in the world, has a rich history of Asian, European and American influences. During your downtime, you'll experience local cuisine, visit breathtaking sites and become immersed in the community and culture.

What will my week look like?

Along with building a new home for a family, you'll have time some free time to explore the country's culture.
