Build as a local volunteer

If you would like to support our operations with your time and strength, we invite you to help with our construction and renovation projects. Join a single-day event at a construction site to:

  • Learn new and useful skills, such as laying floor panels, painting walls, applying plaster coat or even raising stud walls and laying tiles;
  • Spend a day in a friendly atmosphere with people involved in helping others;
  • Learn first-hand from our employees how Habitat for Humanity Poland works;
  • Better understand the housing problems in Poland.

During most of our events, volunteers work hand by hand with the residents of constructed and renovated houses and apartments. At the construction site, you can usually directly meet the people that you are helping.
