I'm excited to return to Zambia for my second Global Village build in this country! Your support of the Orphans and Vulnerable Children project is much appreciated!
I took my first Global Village trip to Zambia in 2015 and was touched by the people and the community. I'm excited to have the opportunity to take a second team of volunteers to this region and help provide homes as a part of Zambia's Orphans and Vulnerable Children Project, which support families consisting of children living with guardians other than their parents - sometimes a grandparent, an aunt, an older sibling or even a neighbor. These families earn very little and would not have the ability to secure a safe home without partnering with Habitat. Your support helps these families realize a dream that they never imagined would come true. Thanks so much!
Habitat for Humanity Zambia opened its doors in 1984, when it started building houses for fishing families on Kabuyu Island. From these small beginnings, HFHZ built more than 1,700 houses, and has expanded into six of the country’s nine provinces.
HFHZ builds in both rural and urban areas. The houses are simple but high quality, with separate sleeping, cooking and living areas. The design is such that homeowners have the option of extending the house as they can afford it in the future.
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.
