“Sometimes it falls on generation to be  great. You can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.”

~ Nelson Mandela, Launch of the ‘Make Poverty History’ campaign, Trafalgar Square, London, England, 3 February 2005


Together, we are that generation. 

Habitat for Humanity has been improving people’s lives all over the world since 1976. We’ve helped over 4 million people.

Here in South Africa, we’ve hosted over 18,000 inspired volunteers since 1996. People tend to think we’re all about building houses. But it’s about so much more than that.

For us, it’s a holistic process. We work with the community. We work with families. We work with the government and private citizens and corporations. And through our people centred approach we help communities address, improve and self-manage their development to sustain their economic futures. We’re also respected advocates in housing and community development policy.

We’re playing our part. We’re changing South Africa. And we’re so excited to welcome you.

Together, we ARE that great generation.  Join us today.

“It is in your hands to make a better world for all who live in it.”

~ Nelson Mandela, at the Nelson Mandela Foundation, 30 June 2009


  Hope is contagious, spread the word!



The Pelican Park community came together today for a wonderful event inspired by the hope and new beginnings that a unified neighborhood brings. Organized by the Pelican Park Owners Association, Habitat South Africa and Dream Factory Foundation, the day featured a talent show that shined a light on talented dancers, rappers, and singers in the community. There was also a jumping castle, face paint, and pony rides for the children. The day truly symbolized "A Message of Hope," as the community shared their stories of the past and future dreams. Thank you Symantec volunteers for helping to make the day a success! ... See MoreSee Less
