Dear Changemakers,

Habitat for Humanity is an international non-profit organization which envisions a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Habitat operates in nearly 70 countries and has served over 50 million people since it was founded in the USA in Protected content . In the past 29 years, Habitat for Humanity Philippines has served and empowered over 140,000 families by providing safe and decent shelter through the houses we build or repair to improve their living conditions, helping to restore hope and transform their lives in the process.


There will be 2 parts of the volunteer activity:

a) House Painting Activity

The house painting activity will be at Habitat's project site in Calauan, Laguna. It is the relocation site for informal settlers living along Pasig River banks.

Volunteers will be divided into small groups and assigned to specific houses they will paint and will able to also interact with the home owners.

b) Christmas decorating activity at ReStore

ReStore is Habitat's home improvement charity and donation center where people can donate new and gently-used items, shop for home and office needs, and volunteer time and talent. Donated items are offered to the public at lower than market value and all proceeds help fund the mission of Habitat for Humanity by providing decent homes to those affected by poverty and disaster.
