Habitat for Humanity South Africa views its work as comprising three components:
as an investor,
and a social transformer.
Habitat for Humanity South Africa works with communities that invite them to partner with them to help address their housing needs. A process of mutual evaluation determines whether a partnership is viable. Habitat for Humanity South Africa considers such factors as the level of need for housing in the community, support of local leadership and community stability. The national governing board approves all new projects. Habitat for Humanity South Africa currently works in three regions across South Africa engaging with communities in the Western Cape, Gauteng and KwaZulu Natal. All Habitat for Humanity South Africa projects are driven by committees consisting of community volunteers. These committees are involved with family selection, homeowner education, the construction programme and monitoring of the individuals’ saving programme. Habitat for Humanity South Africa supports the committee through training them in their roles and responsibilities, administration, house design, finance, business plans, construction programme, and record keeping.
