Habitat may work around the corner from you, but we also work around the world. Through Habitat’s Global Village trips, you can volunteer abroad with us in nearly 30 nations.

Our volunteer trips offer more than just the opportunity to swing a hammer. When you travel and volunteer with Global Village, you’ll experience the country like a local, with the locals. Meet people from around the world with all different kinds of backgrounds, races and religions.

Spending time with other cultures doesn’t mean just exploring the differences, but also discovering the commonalities. You’ll find that you don’t even need to speak the language.

Discover our growth and impact over the years as we celebrate 30 years of Global Village.

Why volunteer abroad with Habitat?

We have various opportunities to volunteer around the world depending on your area of interest, including building one house or many houses at a time, advocating for policy while building, disaster recovery, minor and major home repairs, energy efficiency projects, working with vulnerable populations like children or the disabled, and also trips just for women.

Your participation in one of these trips helps support Habitat’s ongoing homebuilding efforts. While your personal trip may last for a week or more, your financial, emotional and physical contributions can be life-changing for both those in the communities where you work and in your own life for years to come.
