Its hard to imagine people living in shacks and hovels until you see them for yourself. Walking the Village path gives great perspective on how others live verses how most of us live here in the U.S.

I had heard of Habitat for Humanity and a visit to their discovery center and global village provided me with an indepth view of their mission. The short film before you enter the village is informative and the village is nicely done.

I've certainly heard about Habitat for Humanity, but didn't realize the extent of their work until visiting this village. After a short introductory film, my wife and I did a self tour of the presentation. The "village" first encountered was an extensive section that presents...More
