Habitat for Humanity

Founded in 1996 in South Africa, we are part of Habitat for Humanity International. Entirely self-funded, we believe that providing adequate and affordable shelter is the best way to fight poverty. We use holistic interventions that partner with home partners and stakeholders to build communities in which the members play leading roles in their own development.

Our Vision

We believe in a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Here in South Africa we bring people together to build homes, communities and hope.
