What began as a grassroots volunteer program with Habitat for Humanity in a small U.S. town in 2005 has grown to be a global partnership in 18 countries around the world. Over the past 10 years, nearly 2,000 P&G employees have helped build, repair or clean homes for families through our work with Habitat for Humanity.
This year alone, more than 900 P&Gers in Brazil, Poland, the U.S., South Africa, Thailand and other countries have committed to volunteering and helping families realize their dreams of homeownership.
In addition to helping build and clean homes, our employees are hosting healthy house trainings in Colombia, as well as water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) trainings in Vietnam and the Philippines. They’ll share tips on how to keep energy costs low in Poland, and help clean homes for the elderly in Singapore.
P&G people work side-by-side with Habitat families to build their homes.
On move-in day, they share kits of P&G brands such as Mr. Clean, Swiffer,Bounty and Tide, some of which will help families take care of their home for up to six months.
By providing products, education and solutions for home care, P&G brands are helping Habitat families create the experience of home by sharing the resources and knowledge for upkeep and cleaning.
