International Projects

We believe in a world where everyone deserves a safe and decent place to live.

Habitat for Humanity is a global leader. As a global organization delivering local impact, Habitat is uniquely positioned to address the housing crisis, globally. Globally, Habitat for Humanity plays a key role in mobilizing and investing funds as well as sending volunteers to Habitat program implementation countries in an effort to partner with communities in need of access to safe housing.

Through Habitat Canada’s global engagement work we partner with high-priority countries to implement high-impact and sustainable projects in Africa and the Middle East, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Caribbean. This work is designed to empower families and communities to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through housing and community development solutions including:

  • building and repairing homes
  • training in wills writing, homeownership, property rights and safe household management
  • improving access to safe water
  • education in hygiene and sanitation
  • preparing for disaster recovery
  • skills training and financial literacy

Current Projects

Thanks to the support of Canadian donors, we have partnered in countries across the globe to provide access to sustainable housing solutions, safe water and sanitation, assist in disaster relief and recovery, skills training, and financial education.
