Global Village

Global VillageEach 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

Habitat Success Stories

Twenty years ago, Bob came to a Habitat construction site, and he's been volunteering since. "Framing is the fun part," Bob says, "but my favorite task is roofing." He also leads a youth group in making rain barrels for each Habitat home.
