Global Village Program

Habitat for Humanity Egypt’s Global Village (GV) program allows you to experience first-hand the tangible fruition of the generosity of individuals all over the world! Let us take you beyond the pyramids to work alongside families in need and leave a lasting, positive impact in an experience you’ll never forget!

GV teams volunteer their time and resources to participate in the construction of a decent, durable shelter for Habitat homeowners and their families in rural Upper Egypt. Not an architect or engineer? No worries, no experience required! Work activities include plastering, bricklaying, sifting sand and wood roofing, requiring no special skills but making a huge difference in the quality of life for our homeowners. For more specifics about the Habitat Egypt GV experience take a look at our Participant Resources and FAQ pages.

Global Village is an incredibly unique and humbling experience for all who have the privilege of participating in it. More than just building homes, GVs are ultimately about building relationships. You can embody the heart and compassion of all those who support our mission to end poverty housing worldwide!

It is our sincere hope that you will walk away from your GV experience having imparted hope and goodwill to those you serve in Egypt as well as armed with the knowledge necessary to become their ambassadors in your home country.
