Habitat for Humanity has volunteer opportunities all over the world. In 1989, the Global Village program started in response to frequent requests for international short-term volunteer opportunities.
Global Village trips further Habitat for Humanity International’s mission to eliminate poverty housing worldwide. Volunteers bring with them the desire to lend a helping hand and a contribution to cover the cost to build.
You will be more than a tourist. You will be welcomed into the community by your hosts and introduced to the local culture as a guest. You will work and laugh together, share stories, make friends. Volunteers do not need prior building experience, or specific language abilities.
If you have a sense of adventure, are in good health, and are willing to work hard, you can be a part of the Global Village team.
