What We Offer


As a Global Village Renewal volunteer, you will have the opportunity to visit a rural village in Tamil Nadu, India. Here, you will serve the “least of these.”

To serve, you must be prepared to:

  • Nurture your spiritual growth
  • Use your spiritual gifts
  • Build a lasting legacy
  • Accept a global perspective of who are your brothers and sisters

Be a doer, not just a hearer

When you visit Tamil Nadu with Global Village Renewal, local villagers will embrace you in their hearts. All that’s required of you is a loving heart in return.

Global Village Renewal will provide training before you go, equipping you to make an immediate impact when you arrive.

You will begin building bonds your first day with the loving adults and children. You will discover these are proud people. Unwilling to accept a handout, they will work side-by-side with you.

Together, you will build a toilet, a kitchen, a school, or an orphanage.

You will work with children in their classrooms, sharing love that flows from your faith.

The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few

Global Village Renewal needs people from every background to join us in serving the Tamil Nadu villagers. We need people ready to show kindness. People ready to work. People ready to love.

You will visit a place no other U.S.-based organiztion is serving. Yes, it’s a long flight. Yes, you’ll have to get shots. But you will be blessed even more richly than those we serve.

Our promise to you is simple. You won’t ever be the same person again after your trip.
