The Fuller Center for Housing Global Builders Program

SAINT PAUL, Minnesota - February 5, 2011

Armenia - an ancient homeland along the Old Spice Route, a fabled Garden of Eden, the first country to adopt Christianity - is an emerging democracy in need of safe, affordable housing.  The Fuller Center for Housing encourages you to participate in its Global Builders program in Armenia to assist those who still struggle from the devastating 1988 earthquake and strive to establish a free economy.

Join a two-week Global Builders team and enjoy the richness of Armenia and its generous people in a remarkable way - by working side by side with families to construct decent housing. Travel Armenia's historic roads to see pre-Christian sites, 9th century churches, green pastures, colorful marketplaces, and dramatic mountain gorges. Learn about Armenia's captivating history and culture while more importantly, helping a needy family achieve their lifelong dream of a healthy home. You will come away with more than you give, with more than you ever hoped to realize.

May 15-29: the lush northern region of Vanadzor
July 9-23:    the lush northern region of Vanadzor
