Habitat for Humanity
The need for adequate housing solutions in Asia-Pacific is immense. Based on the United Nations data, half of the world’s poor — those living on less than US$1.90 a day — are in this region. A person living in Asia-Pacific is five times more likely than someone living outside of it to be hit by a disaster, increasing the risk of losing his or her home.
Habitat for Humanity partners with families in need of decent housing to build secure, affordable homes. Their work is made possible with the contributions of financial resources, expertise, services, and volunteer labor from donors, partner organisations, volunteers, and the families themselves. Potential homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor — known as “sweat equity” — into building their Habitat house and the houses of others.
Habitat also partners with governments, corporations, and non-profit organisations to increase families’ access to adequate housing, clean water and safe sanitation, and secure land tenure.
Working in the world’s most disaster-prone region has increased their capacity to support disaster risk reduction and response. To date, Habitat has helped more than 230,000 families in 52 countries through its disaster response work.
