Big Build 2018 will build 10 homes in one week, alongside hardworking families who need a decent home.

Work will begin on Monday 1st October, World Habitat Day. As we raise our hammers, we also raise our voices with the global Habitat family about the urgent, growing need for safe shelter.

Big Build 2018

Habitat's Big Build is taking place in Malawi's capital, Lilongwe where over 76% of the population live in slums. In 7 days, we will build 10 homes, supporting our Orphaned and Vulnerable children programme.

Join us for this special week! Build beside the local community, witness the life-changing impact of a simple home and inspire others to join the cause of safe shelter.
