Since the Canadian Global Village program started in the spring of 2005, over 10,000 volunteers have answered the call to action in more than 40 countries around the world. This incredible response has meant more hands, more resources and more families placed in safe, decent, affordable homes around the world. You, our volunteers, have been a critical part of making this happen and you should be very proud of what you have accomplished.
