HABITAT INTERNATIONAL & MECOSTA
“Globalization, as defined by rich people like us, is a very nice thing... you are talking about the Internet, you are talking about cell phones, you are talking about computers. This doesn't affect two-thirds of the people of the world.” - Jimmy Carter
About Habitat for Humanity International
Founded in Americus, Georgia, USA, Habitat for Humanity is comprised of more than 1,400 local affiliates in the United States and more than 70 national organizations around the world. Together, Habitat for Humanity has helped 6.8 million people improve their living conditions since our founding in 1976.
Habitat for Humanity houses are simple, decent and affordable to low-income families around the world. Whenever possible, we build sustainable, energy-efficient and healthy housing.
There are nearly 2 billion people around the world who live in slum housing and more than 100 million are homeless. Habitat International helps by building or renovating simple, decent houses in partnership with those in need.
Families left homeless by natural disasters, war and civil unrest often face dire housing situations as they struggle to rebuild their lives. We provide shelter and housing assistance to help these families recover.
