About us

INTRODUCTION

A nonprofit housing organization, Habitat for Humanity International envisions a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Anchored by the conviction that safe and affordable housing provides a path out of poverty, since 1976 Habitat has helped more than 5 million people through home construction, rehabilitation and repairs and by increasing access to improved shelter through products and services. Habitat also advocates to improve access to decent and affordable shelter and offers a variety of housing support services that enable families with limited means to make needed improvements on their homes as their time and resources allow. Habitat works in more than 70 countries and welcomes people of all races, religions and nationalities to partner in its mission. Habitat has supported an estimated 2 million individuals in the Asia-Pacific region, where it has been active since 1983. In Vietnam, Habitat for Humanity started operating as a branch office in January 2001 in Da Nang city in the central coastal region. As of June 2016, HFH Vietnam has enabled more than 13,600 low-income Vietnamese families to improve their living conditions through decent homes, clean water and safe sanitation and post-disaster reconstruction and repairs. In addition, HFH Vietnam has provided training in disaster preparedness, financial education, hygiene practices, and construction skills, among others, to more than 75,800 individuals.

Habitat for Humanity Vietnam provides low-income families with a way out of poverty by building homes, communities and hope. Through safe and decent homes, HFH Vietnam and its partners aim to  open the door for families to benefit from improved health, better performance in school, greater livelihood opportunities and strong community spirit.

PARTNERS

Just like other international non-governmental organizations in Vietnam, Habitat for Humanity works with local government agencies to boost project sustainability. In such partnerships, Habitat will also conduct training to build the capacity of the local government partners.

We work with local government partners such as Vietnam Red Cross, Women’s Union, Fatherland Front, Youth Union and others. Projects are implemented by the government partners and members of the local communities who continue to provide oversight upon HFH Vietnam’s completion of the projects.
