Volunteer Abroad

Global Village

Global Village is our short term, international volunteering programme. Whether you’re looking for intense DIY trips or charity work abroad that will help break the cycle of poverty, these opportunities are nothing short of life-changing.


Where we build:

  • Africa
  • Asia
  • Europe
  • Latin America

 Types of volunteer trips:

  • Open builds, open for everyone to sign up
  • Closed builds, for corporates and larger groups who want to enjoy the experience amongst themselves. Find out more about corporate volunteering abroad , or get in touch with Habitat for Humanity Great Britain’s Corporate Partnerships Officer: lmonfard@habitatforhumanity.org.uk

 Types of building projects

The core mission of our charity work abroad is to build decent, affordable homes for families in need. However, this doesn’t always mean that we build new homes from the ground up. Our projects are designed to respond to local needs first and foremost (e.g. hygiene and sanitation, education, etc).

  • Build Louder: Build and advocate to advance affordable housing.
  • Critical home improvement: Improve existing shelters.
  • Disaster recovery: Build back stronger after a disaster and learn about our work to reduce risks.
  • Green building: Help build energy-efficient homes.
  • Home construction: Help build new homes.
  • Vulnerable populations: Bring stability and opportunity to orphans, vulnerable children and other people experiencing extreme difficulties.
  • Women Build: Build homes as part of an all-female team.
