Global Village Information
What is Global Village?
Global Village is Habitat's short-term international volunteer program that brings people together to build and improve homes and the health and wellbeing of people and whole communities. Habitat for Humanity Australia works closely with our partners in Cambodia, Vietnam, Fiji and Indonesia and in just one week, you’ll work with home partner families and local labourers to help construct a new home for a family in need.
No experience or skills are required and students from the age of 15+ - of all fitness levels - are welcome. Depending on the country you visit, you might be mixing concrete, weaving bamboo, laying bricks, digging trenches or painting. By working alongside a family, you give them an opportunity to be independent and have healthier, happier, more secure futures. Their lives will be forever changed, and your hard work will continue to have a lasting impact long after you have returned home.
So why not sign your school up for a life-changing adventure today?’
Through shelter, we empower.
Why Involve Your School?
Whether you’re looking for a rewarding team building experience for your school, or an exciting way for students to reach their Duke of Edinburgh award goals, our Global Village program is the perfect opportunity to learn about international development and make a positive impact on the world at the same time. Global Village is a chance for students to get out of the classroom, head overseas and get their hands dirty in a truly impactful activity where they witness the value of helping those in need. Through their participation in these projects, students enrich their own learning, and the fundraising component allows further immersion in the cause and the engagement of the wider school community. The funds raised go far beyond supporting the activity and helps to ensure the continued operation of our support in the Asia Pacific region, which seeks to provide safe, decent and affordable housing to families in need.
