“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

Meet Ms Thandi. She lives in Orange Farm Extension 6 and shares her home with the three Luthuli boys. Dumisani, Njabulo, and Percy
Luthuli (their mentally-challenged brother) have lived under her care since their mother and grandmother passed away years ago.

Thandi took the young boys in when they had no one else to look after them. She also cares for her own four grandchildren within a dilapidated four-roomed house.

During our Orange Farm Team Event 7-11 November, YOU can make a difference in the lives of families like theirs through critical home repairs. Email whd@habitat.org.za for info and costings.
