Global Village Trip: completed 2011

Seventeen people set off for our inaugural Global Village build with our sister affiliate in La Ceiba, Honduras. The group endured sweltering hot and humid conditions, unforgiving sun, mosquitoes, and sore muscles to move more than 1,000 cinder blocks, not once but several times, and six dump truck loads of sand, gravel and red clay to build as much as we could in six days! We built five courses of foundation and about four courses of the walls. The house was almost halfway done and would be complete four to six weeks later.
