International volunteering with Habitat NI is an amazing opportunity to work alongside families in need of a decent place to call home.

Every year, volunteers from across Northern Ireland travel to support our partner programmes around the world. They experience firsthand the impact of poverty housing and help make a lasting difference to families in need. We hope to encourage volunteers to become a voice for safe shelter when they return home; inspiring others to help us reach many more families in need. 

Every year churches, schools, companies and other organisations partner with Habitat through global village; putting faith in action; building their teams; allowing young people a life changing experience; always helping Habitat build hope. If you would like to build a team please get in touch:  or 028 92 635 635.
