“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

Habitat for Humanity is a global, nonprofit housing organisation. We believe 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, universities, corporations and other 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.

We have a range of programs designed for different organisations and different objectives, so please review our website or contact your local Habitat for Humanity office to find out more.
