Habitat is about challenges; challenging the mind, the status quo and most importantly, challenging circumstances to create an opportunity to become all that our innate potential allows. We challenge persons from all walks of life to work with us and impact on the number of persons living in substandard shelter in the world. We, therefore, challenge you to get your hands dirty and toil under the sun with people from different backgrounds, usually people with whom you would not normally have interacted, and watch all the barriers disappear, creating room for mutual understanding, respect and appreciation.
Additionally, we offer younger supporters various intercultural learning opportunities through our Volunteer team trips, building days and internships at our offices. With Habitat, personal growth and learning becomes a global educational experience, breaking the cycle of habitual thinking patterns, spawning creativity and forcing minds to think ‘out of the box’.
Since its inception in 1976, Habitat for Humanity’s lifeblood has been its volunteers. The unique housing model developed by Millard and Linda Fuller and Clarence Jordan in 1965 counts on the support, passion and commitment of volunteers around the world to make decent and affordable homes a reality.
