Story About Us
Where it all began

Who Are We?

Give A Home is a registered NPO and was founded in Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa. “Our drive stems from the passion we have, to ensure as many South Africans have a place to call home as possible. Housing is a human right. There can be no fairness or justice in a world in which some live in homelessness.”

The Mission

The Give A Home NPO, along with its generous donors, builds homes for families across South Africa. Dramatically improving the lives of the millions of South Africans who do not have homes, or live in informal settlements & squatter camps.

The Current Reality

In South Africa, it is estimated that over 5 million people do not have a home or live in squatter camps and informal settlements. They mostly lack proper sanitation, safe water supply, electricity, hygienic streets, or other basic human necessities.

The Strategy

Give A Home’s strategy is to build affordable homes at scale by; receiving generous donations from individuals & companies, using cost-effective building technologies and generating innovative ideas.



The Give A Home NPO has identified Greenbuild SA’s state of the art building technology to give fellow South African families a place to call home. The building methodology is Agrément certified and has been approved by the NHBRC & Human Settlements.

The team has over 35 years of experience in the building industry, specializing in affordable housing. Greenbuild SA provides solid walls that are easy to assemble, strong, durable, energy-efficient and cost-effective. The resultant savings in time and money helps Give A Homes build more homes.


Where the money goes

All donations that are received by the Give A Home NPO will go towards the planning, materials, labour, furniture and equipment needed to construct as many homes as possible.

We work tirelessly to ensure that your donations are delivered directly to those that need it most. Should you require any further information before donating please do not hesitate to contact us at any time
