2020 Honduras (Agalta Valley) Family 1
About the Journey
Through our partnership with HOI, this global(x) team will head to Honduras, the second largest country in Central America. Bordered by the Caribbean Sea to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south, its tropical rainforests, stunning coastlines, and Mayan ruins are just some of the things for which Honduras is known. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the poorest of the Latin American countries, and almost two-thirds of the population lives in poverty.
We’re looking to build a team that’s ready to roll-up their sleeves and help with home improvement projects in the community. This visit will be a combination of both construction and engagement with children at local schools.
From Atlanta, the team will fly into Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras. Upon arrival you’ll take a several hour bus ride to your hotel for one night. The following morning, you’ll head to the ranch where you’ll be lodging for the remainder of your visit.
Your global(x) team will work with HOI to meet the needs of the local community. Generally, teams take on construction projects that help with the improvement of health and sanitation within family homes. They usually include laying cement floors, making wash basins and building latrines, but don’t worry. You don’t need any prior construction experience.
The team will also coordinate some interactive relational activities for the local school children and host a Vacation Bible School camp. You’ll play games, tell stories, sing songs, and just have fun.
Sharing the love of Jesus as you help improve local homes in the community will not only be an eye-opening experience, but also one that you won’t soon forget. If you’re interested in the opportunity to serve the Honduran community, apply now!
New for 2020!
You're busy enough, so we're taking some things off your to-do list! We've reduced the number of individual forms you need to complete simply by adding a few questions to the global(x) application. Students, if you are under the age of 18 and will be at the time of travel, you will need a parent present to help you complete this part of the application. We'll also collect your credit card information during the application process so we can automatically charge your deposit and credit it to your account once you're placed on a team. And, no more paper copies of your passport are needed. Just upload it in your application or to your ServiceReef profile and you're done!
global(x) provides meaningful journeys for teams to serve at-risk people in communities around the world. We want to help you combine your faith and service so you can help make life better for those in need, grow your faith, and make a difference in the world.
