Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project

Each year since 1984, former President Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, give a week of their time to help us improve and build homes. The Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project helps raise awareness of the critical need for simple, decent and affordable housing. The event attracts volunteers from around the world.

Are you interested in volunteering for the 2015 Carter Work Project in Nepal?
Habitat for Humanity’s 32nd annual Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project will take place Nov. 1-6, 2015, in Nepal.
Habitat for Humanity Nepal will host the event, which will bring President and Mrs. Carter together with thousands of volunteers for a weeklong build to help improve neighborhoods and raise awareness about affordable housing. This event is part of Habitat Nepal’s ambitious goal of helping 100,000 Nepali families have decent shelter by 2016.
As Habitat CEO Jonathan Reckford shared during his Carter Work Project 2014 closing ceremony remarks, we celebrated all that was accomplished in Texas, but we know there is so much more to build. 
For more than three decades, the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project has served as a catalyst for raising awareness about the need for improved access to affordable housing by empowering people to bring hope, stability and housing solutions to their communities. To date, more than 92,000 volunteers have built, renovated and repaired 3,943 homes in 14 countries during the previous 31 annual events, shedding light on the role decent housing provides families in breaking the cycle of poverty.
The 2015 Carter Work Project will begin 31 days after President Carter’s 91st birthday. Join President and Mrs. Carter, the people of Nepal and thousands of volunteers from around the world to build homes and change lives by joining the 2015 Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project.
