Who we are
Europe, Middle East and Africa
Habitat for Humanity is a global, nonprofit housing organisation with over 40 years of experience. We empower people in the world’s poorest communities to overcome the chronic lack of decent, affordable housing.
The problems are varied and complex in Europe, Middle East and Africa. This is why we have a range of solutions tailored to help local people build a better future. For example, our work in Africa might involve enabling small, affordable loans to build houses through our housing microfinance initiatives. In Eastern Europe, we work with community associations to retrofit decrepit housing.
Our experience, expertise and range of solutions make us a leader in the global housing sector. But we alone can’t solve the ‘silent emergency’, in which so many millions still suffer from poor housing conditions and deprivation. We work in partnership with beneficiaries, volunteers, public and private sector partners, civil society and governments to bring about change to build strong and stable communities.
