Corporate volunteering

Global Village is our short-term, international volunteering programme

Welcome to Global Village

Throw job titles and positions aside, immerse yourself in another culture, and unite employees together as a collective force to lift families out of poverty.

Giving back to communities

Stand with one of the world’s leading housing charities to build homes for the world’s most vulnerable people.

  • Take a team of up to 20 employees
  • Work with the local community and Habitat for Humanity country staff
  • Be led and guided by an experienced Team Leader

Put your company values into action

Global Village adds a narrative and personality to your organisation. How? The programme’s key benefits include:

  • Improving staff retention and engagement
  • Aligning your organisation as socially responsible and globally aware
  • Connecting you to your clients, customers and community

One of our homeowners was at a loss for words when given an opportunity to speak to the room; the other was eager to share her gratitude. In their own ways, each was clearly and profoundly happy.Kirsty, Wells Fargo
