We are a non-profit organisation building strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable housing and sanitation facilities. Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Founded in 1983, we are one of the largest housing programmes in the Asia-Pacific region. We are affiliated to Habitat For Humanity International — a global non-government organisation now present in more than 70 countries. Habitat for Humanity was founded by Millard and Linda Fuller who developed the concept of partnership housing with farmer and biblical scholar Clarence Jordan. While we have Christian roots, Habitat for Humanity India works with people of all backgrounds, races and religions across India to build houses in partnership with families in need.

India’s Housing Crisis

India faced a 18.78 million urban housing shortage, and 28.9 million rural housing shortage in the country. In urban areas, people can be found living under bridges, on pavements, train tracks, highways and canals as well as in crowded slums.

Habitat's philosophy

No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent life. We deserve to feel strength and stability day after day. We deserve to know we have the power to take care of ourselves and build our own futures.

At Habitat for Humanity, this is what unites us. Through shelter, we empower. Because we are all humans. And every single one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future.
