Meet our B4B Ambassadors

B4B is supported by an international network of volunteers who raise funds to support our building programs. Our B4B Ambassadors sell bracelets &/or raise sufficient funds for the cost of a house, or approximately $3600 USD / ~$4800 Cdn.  This entitles them to travel to Cambodia, at their own expense, to witness the gifting of a house.  Many individuals have joined us in Cambodia and we understand that it has been a life-altering experience for them.  If you are interested in becoming a B4B Ambassador, please click here and we can provide more information.

"I have been on building sites in the West Region of Ghana and in Surabaya with Habitat for Humanity. I can personally say it is a very unique and humbling experience when you see first hand how little it really takes to change the life of a family in a third world country. You have 6 - 10 days working with a group of volunteers to assist in building / renovating a house for a family. Although you do not speak the same language.....the smiles 😀, hugs ☺️, the Thumbs up 👍, the happiness 🙏 and of course the tears of joy 😂  are the best experience you may ever have in your life. It really does change how you think about yourself / family and friends ......and really what you have as personable belongings / wealth compared to these less fortunate individuals. You realize that you do not need all the things that you and your family have accumulated over the years.....just helping in any way you can is a remarkable experience"

It is exciting to know how far a few dollars can go in changing lives in Southeast Asia. Thank  you Lee for the opportunity to connect with your other partners and those who we will serve.  I believe I am about to make some new lifelong friends.
