About Me

This will be my first trip with Habitat for Humanity and my first trip to Africa. I am excited and am looking forward to learning about Malawi, helping kids, and impacting the lives of those less fortunate.  With everything going on in the world, I want to do something positive that will help others on a greater scale. They say that the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. I am encouraged that this opportunity will help me become a better person. 

Any donation helps, small or big. It is safe and secure and if you have any questions, please reach out to me @ zahidaaminy@gmail.com.

More Info

Malawi is a country of immense beauty — and extreme poverty. It is one of the least developed countries in the world. The economy is predominately agricultural and is dependent on substantial international assistance.

Seventy-five percent of the population lives on less than US$2 a day. Because of the widespread poverty, four out of five families live in substandard homes, with little hope of ever being able to afford a decent house. A typical village hut is built of mud and daub with a dirt floor and thatched roof. The conditions put families at high risk of disease.

Habitat for Humanity Malawi, established in 1986, constructs houses of burnt clay bricks, concrete floors and tile roofs. More than 5,000 houses have been built so far. By providing improved housing to families, Habitat Malawi has enhanced lives and reduced the occurrence of malaria, respiratory illnesses and intestinal parasites.

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 has grown from a grassroots effort that began on a community farm in southern Georgia in 1976 to a global nonprofit housing organization in nearly 1,400 communities across the U.S. and in over 70 countries. People 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.
