Creativity Action Service with Habitat for Humanity
Europe, Middle East and Africa
“Our visit to the family we were helping was a truly enlightening and fulfilling experience. It was then that I profoundly realized how privileged I am to live in proper housing as well as how I could reach out to less fortunate families.”— A volunteer from the American School of Paris
Habitat partners with more than 55 schools and universities, helping them fulfill their community action service requirements. In Europe, Middle East and Africa, Habitat has years of experience creating tailor made opportunities for schools to raise awareness of social responsibility and strengthen community spirit through service learning. We partner with international schools and universities, helping them fulfill their community action service requirements.
Join our volunteer trips
Habitat offers volunteer trips through its Global Village program for students and teachers to build homes together, get immersed in a new culture and language and get to know each other from a different perspective—all that by laying the foundations for new homes and new friendships.
Habitat can organize building trips during fall, spring or summer breaks, at a location of your choice. In Europe, Middle East and Africa you can build with Habitat in the following countries: Armenia, Bulgaria, Ethiopia, Hungary, Jordan, Kyrgyzstan, Lesotho, Macedonia, Malawi, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Tajikistan and Zambia. You can also choose from a number of destinations worldwide. Your school or university can also join one of Habitat’s special builds.

Resource guide for education and development
Habitat for Humanity Europe, Middle East and Africa has developed a resource guide for education and development (pdf) to help teachers bring current development trends and issues regarding poverty housing into their classrooms. Throughout the guide, Habitat provides opportunities for students to be critical thinkers and active learners, while promoting advocacy and volunteerism.
