Discover your world, and the power you have to make a difference.

What you can expect

You'll help lift up families and communities by giving it your all on the worksite.

See where we Build

See the world, experience new cultures, make friends, and change lives as you help us with the construction of much-needed projects in a positive, safe environment. Our Builds trips take place in Mexico, Thailand and the Dominican Republic.

Since the very first Build, our priorities have stayed the same:


Focus on the needs of the community

To make a lasting impact, it’s important to listen, because no one knows the needs of a community better than the community itself! We work alongside our global neighbours to complete projects that help meet the needs that they have identified.


Build authentic relationships

The core strength of everything we do is always centred around authentic relationships, where we learn from, and are encouraged by, each other. This includes both the relationships we have with each other and the communities we serve.


Empowerment for all

Feeling empowered comes from stepping outside of your comfort zone and realizing you can make real change in the world. And by getting to work, you’ll be helping communities reach their potential.


Change the world, and be changed in the process

Get Inspired

The people that I have met and the experiences I have had during these Builds have changed my entire outlook on life.
