Volunteer abroad

Europe, Middle East and Africa

Habitat for Humanity believes that by connecting communities from around the world, we move closer to a world where everyone, everywhere has a decent place to call home. 

To achieve this goal and vision, we run a volunteer program that spans 40 countries called Global Village for schools and universities, corporations and volunteer groups of committed people.

Volunteering with us means you will work, under expert supervision, with local volunteers and future homeowners as they seek to improve their lives by building or renovating their homes and communities.

The work is rewarding in many ways and doesn’t require any prior expertise or training.

“I love the idea of real hands-on kind of helping, instead of just writing a cheque and hoping it ends up in the right place. I know exactly who I am helping and why.”
— Catie McGonagle, St. Columba’s College, volunteer in Hungary
