Everyone deserves a safe and secure place to live. I’m raising money for a Habitat Global Village home build in Lesotho. This build is an Orphaned and Vulnerable Groups project.
Please partner with me and Habitat for Humanity (HFH) Global Village to create decent, affordable housing solutions for a family in need in Lesotho. HFH Lesotho focuses on building new homes housing for orphans and vulnerable groups including widows, female- or child-headed households, the elderly and those with special needs. Our build team’s tasks are likely to include mixing mortar, putting up window frames and fitting window panes and door frame, pouring cement floor slabs, staging bricks and other building materials and preparing mortar. Your tax-deductible contribution will help to cover the cost of building materials and local HFH support. Any amount you can provide will be put to great use and very appreciated! Thanks in advance for your support and please feel free to share. #home #habitatforhumanity #globalvillage #everydollarcounts #makeadifference #happybirthdaytome
Habitat for Humanity Lesotho launched its program in 2001 and has worked in seven of the ten districts. These districts are located in both the lowlands and the foothills of the Mountain Kingdom. HFH Lesotho constructs block and brick homes consisting of corrugated iron roofs. Homes range from either a single-room addition to three-roomed houses. All houses have a detached latrine.The current initiative at HFH Lesotho is called the BUILD Lesotho Project (Bringing Shelter and United Initiatives to Lift Disadvantaged Children), which is a multi-year project targeting orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) in the northern districts of Lesotho. Since many OVC families cannot afford minimal loan payments, HFH Lesotho provides fully subsidized homes to ensure their protection. HFH Lesotho also advocates on behalf of vulnerable groups, such as OVC and widows, by disseminating information about inheritance and property rights as well as providing will registration assistance. Through these activities, HFH Lesotho helps vulnerable families in Lesotho improve their lives and protect their futures.
Global Village is Habitat for Humanity’s international volunteer program. Teams travel to over 40 countries to work alongside communities, build housing solutions, and experience local culture. Our goal is to change the lives of the people we serve, as well as the lives of the volunteers.

About Habitat for Humanity International
Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots effort on a community farm in southern Georgia. The housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in more than 1,300 communities throughout the U.S. and in more than 70 countries. Families and individuals in need of a hand up partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Through shelter, we empower. To learn more, visit habitat.org.
