global village volunteer builds
Bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope
Global Village is Habitat for Humanity’s international volunteer program which brings people together to build and improve homes, and to contribute to the health and well-being of communities and the people who live in them. More than 850 teams travel to over 30 countries around the world each year, to help build a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Global Village volunteers work in countries where Habitat is already active, to create strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. They build alongside community members and families, offering a hand up out of poverty. Through the experience, volunteers deepen their own understanding of housing and poverty issues and of other cultures, while making a lasting impact through their financial, emotional and physical contribution that continues long after the team returns home.
Global Village volunteers make Habitat’s work sustainable and empower communities to create better futures
