“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 5 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

If the trend continues, almost 40 percent of the world's population will live in substandard housing by 2030. We are inviting you to join us in changing this reality. We urge you to engage your company and its employees in participating in the World Habitat Day Team Build Week in Gauteng, KwaZulu Natal and the Western Cape.

Habitat for Humanity South Africa alone cannot address the critical issue of inadequate housing. It will take the efforts of business and community leaders, governments, volunteers and other nonprofits.

With your help, we can improve lives and communities — at home and around the globe.
