Habitat for Humanity Ethiopia Family Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East has built over 220 homes in the Portland Metro area, but did you know that our affiliate has also built over 230 homes worldwide? To help support the work of Habitat for Humanity International, our affiliate tithes 10% of undesignated contributions to Habitat affiliates in El Salvador and Ethiopia.

We are forming a Global Village trip to visit our Habitat partners in Ethiopia and we want you to join! The Global Village trip is January 11, 2013 through January 20, 2013 and will include a week of service, building water and sanitation facilities for Habitat families in the capital city of Addis Ababa. This is a brand new project for Habitat Ethiopia, addressing the need of over 80% of Addis Ababa’s residents who don’t have access to clean water and sanitation.

If you are interested in learning more or joining the Global Village trip to Ethiopia, contact Sasha Davis at or 503.287.9529 x17.

And please view the video below to learn more about the efforts we will be participating in.
