Cross borders. Build homes. Change lives.

When you volunteer overseas with Habitat for Humanity through our Global Village program you will spend a week helping a family in need build a safe and decent home.

Throughout the Asia Pacific region we work in partnership with families to not only build homes, but provide access to water and sanitation and health and educational services like teaching financial literacy and livelihood training.

Global Village gives ordinary Australians the chance to see our work on the ground and help build one home alongside a family in need, who will also be impacted by our wider community development program.

Get involved today!

Join a team of like-minded individuals and
travel overseas to build a home together.
