Winston Churchill said, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
Since our first expedition in 2009, Singular Humanitarian has facilitated 16 weeklong expeditions with 675 volunteer expeditioners to seven countries.
We never could have imagined the lasting impact this growing number of singles has had working side-by-side with hardworking, grateful villagers in remote areas of Guatemala (seven times), Nepal (three times), Kenya (twice), Bolivia, Peru, Mexico, and Ecuador. To explore the details of our past expeditions, please visit our Expeditions page (link to “Expeditions” page).
Working together with CHOICE Humanitarian, our expeditioners have helped build schools, a hospital, health clinics, water lines and water pumps, bricks, kitchens, community centers, wood-burning stoves and biogas digesters. We have planted orchards and repaired and painted schools. We have trained and worked with 100s of rural teachers, healthworkers, midwives, dentists, small business owners and entrepreneurs.
But the cornerstone of these sustainable projects are the relationships. The expeditioners and villagers connected. The lives touched and changed.
Travel + Service.
Unlike anything you’ve experienced.
Singular Humanitarian is a 100% volunteer-run 501(c)3 organization of LDS YSAs/MSAs serving in sustainable humanitarian development around the world. We embark on service expeditions that bring together 40-50 dynamic, like-minded singles from all over to experience an extraordinary country, people and culture on a weeklong service adventure.
This unique service environment takes each of us “off the grid,” totally immerses us in the local culture and creates real intercultural and human connections. We deepen our perspective and make a sustainable impact as we use our skills and talents in truly meaningful ways while having the time of our lives. We work side-by-side and celebrate the progress made on village-determined development projects in medical, dental, education, economic development and construction.
