Habitat for Humanity is a global, non-profit housing organisation with over 40 years of experience
in working with people in the world’s poorest communities to overcome the chronic lack of decent,
affordable housing. Since 1976, we have helped 9 million people in over 50 countries and 1,700 communities.
Unfortunately, one in four people still live in unacceptable housing conditions, many of them in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
This is why Habitat has a range of solutions tailored to help local people build a better future: our work in Africa might involve enabling small, affordable loans to build houses; in Eastern Europe, we might work with community associations to retrofit decrepit housing or at a regional level, we might be advocating for better housing regulations.
