Message from the Editor:
I worked as a volunteer on on a Habitat for Humanity housing project in Masiphumelele, Cape Town, South Africa. It is a truly rewarding experience to see someone who has never owned their own home being handed the keys to their new house that was built from pure team work, knowing you contributed.

Guide to Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity International is a non-profit organization that works its magic worldwide by constructing decent affordable houses for people who would otherwise not be in a position to afford their own homes. They empower the beneficiaries and people within those communities to work towards improving their own lives and the lives of their fellow community members by teaching them valuable skills. To achieve this, and to save costs, Habitat for Humanity utilizes the services of volunteers – anybody who can hold a bucket and a paint brush can assist.Habitat for Humanity Homes

In addition to providing shelter for those in need at low cost, Habitat for Humanity restores homes following disasters. Habitat for Humanity homes provided shelter for those left destitute by the earthquake that destroyed Haiti and the earthquakes and tsunami that devastated Japan.
