“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

Last year, together with the community of Drieziek, corporate partners, Nelson Mandela, Department of Human Settlements, Agisanang and NJR Projects, 42 homes were built during the Nelson Mandela Build Week in Orange Farm. Today was the celebration of our community crew's service excellence and homeowners as their homes were dedicated. So many blessings for a future filled with strength, stability and self-reliance. Thank you for making a difference in these families lives. #homeatlast #rememberingmandela ... See MoreSee Less

Day 5...and we're sad to have to say farewell, but beyond grateful for the blessing that this group of Belfast Bus Drivers have been to us and the Mfuleni community this week. Huddled inside Mabonge's new home...where empty land stood in front of his green shack just last week. Thank you for being "a driving force of love." Safe travels home.
