GIVING GLOBAL


From remote villages to sprawling cities, the need for safe, decent, affordable housing is everywhere. It takes many forms across countries and has a far-reaching effect.

This is why we invest in housing both locally and globally. Through financial support of housing programs abroad and Global Village volunteer trips, we have broadened our impact and built security, stability, and self-reliance for more than 960 families in 32 countries.

VOLUNTEER GLOBALLY


Global Village trips take volunteers abroad to make a hands-on difference in the countries we support through our Global Investment Program. You will experience the country like a local, with locals from the partnering Habitat affiliate. While these trips may only last a week or two, the financial, emotional, and physical contributions can be life-changing -- not only for the community where you work, but also for you and your volunteer team.

 

UPCOMING GLOBAL VILLAGE TRIPS


The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to all parts of society, Global Village included. Habitat for Humanity’s top priority is the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, partners and the people we serve and, as such, there are no currently scheduled Global Village builds.

“This was a life changing experience for me. You have showed me that volunteering is not just an occasional event. You’ve made me question who I interact with and why. What do I want to do with my time and who do I want to be surrounded by. Each and every one of you has left a little bit of chispa in my heart.”

Linda, 2014 Global Village Volunteer
