Each time Habitat builds a home with a family in Durham, a house is sponsored for an equally deserving family in Honduras. Habitat affiliates nationwide are asked to "tithe" 10% to fund Habitat for Humanity International’s work abroad.
Since 1985, Habitat for Humanity of Durham has built more than 206 homes in 13 countries and tithed more than $736,000. Durham Habitat was recognized among the top 25 "tithe" program participants by Habitat for Humanity International.
Durham Habitat has built homes in:
- The Carribbean: Haiti
- Latin America: Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador
- Africa: Tanzania, Malawi, Kenya, Uganda
- Asia: India, the Phillipines
Build with us in Honduras
Each February, Durham Habitat staff and volunteers travel to Honduras to participate in the building process. On these 10-day trips, volunteers work alongside future homeowners and local volunteers. Learn more about our volunteer trips to Honduras.
