The Fuller Center for Housing is a non-profit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry dedicated to eliminating poverty housing worldwide. The Fuller Center works through local partnerships that are formed with communities all over the world, including Trishuli, Nepal! And, with the April 2015 earthquake that devastated the country, the need for housing is even greater.
Global Builders teams will work in the town of Trishuli or the surrounding area, which is about 50 miles north of bustling Kathmandu and in the midst of the earthquake’s devastation. Set in the Himalayan foothills with the world’s tallest mountains as a distant backdrop, you’ll be working in one of the most picturesque locations on earth.
The Fuller Center for Housing Mission Trip to Nepal lasts one to two weeks and groups can choose what dates work best for them. We are able to host teams all year around except July-September. If you are an individual looking to join a trip that is already set-up you can visit our upcoming trips page to see our open trips
The Fuller Center for Housing welcomes volunteers ages 14+ and of all skill levels. Foreign-language skills are not necessary. We accept all who have a willingness to serve!
What We Will Do
All 23 of the homes built by the Fuller Center prior to the earthquake withstood the disaster in pristine condition. Our mission is to share better building methods in the villages throughout the district through demonstrating how to build better. Our goal is to build as many as 200 homes, funds permitting. Participants will have the unique opportunity to work side by side with families and other locals to build safe, decent and affordable homes for these hardworking people. Tasks will include moving materials, laying block, digging footers, mixing mortar, and other construction related tasks.
