Habitat for Humanity Vietnam believes in a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Studies have shown the positive impact that decent housing has on an individual. Having light, safe drinking water and sanitation, a quiet place to work, and stable occupancy mean better performance at school and improved income prospects. Citizens living in adequate homes are healthier, more productive, creating thriving communities and generating stronger economies. Join Habitat for Humanity Vietnam in building homes, communities and hope.

WHY WE BUILD?

According 2009 Population and Housing Census, nearly 6.7 million Vietnamese ─ 7.8 percent of the population ─ are living in temporary or sub-standard housing. Low-income families living in poorly built housing are trapped in annual cycles of repairs. More than half of rural dwellers lack adequate sanitation while more than one third do not have access to clean water. Every seven in 10 persons also face the risk of typhoons, torrential storms and flooding which hit Vietnam annually.

Adequate housing creates a base of safety from which to foster social inclusion and community. It empowers women who are often the head of the household. It improves people’s livelihood as the home can be used as a base for small business. When wage-earners return to a safe and comfortable home, they are likely to be healthier both mentally and physically, which boosts their labor productivity. Improvements in housing are also associated with improved educational outcomes for children.

Help us build homes, communities and hope
