Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization that’s seeks to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope. Since 1976, Habitat has served more than 500,000 families, and works in numerous countries across the world, including Cambodia. Habitat for Humanity began its work in Cambodia in 2002 and has assisted more than 4,400 families in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Battambang, Kandal, Prey Veng and Takeo. Habitat for Humanity Cambodia strategically aims, by 2014, to increase families served by assisting at least 30,000 people in six provinces of Cambodia by providing a diverse range of housing solutions to at least 10,000 families.
Since 2003, Habitat for Humanity Cambodia has built over 2,000 houses and has unveiled an initiative – CambodiaBUILDS. This five-year strategic initiative aims to provide better housing for 10,000 low-income Cambodian families and to inspire the involvement of individuals, officials, groups, organizations and the government, to champion innovative housing solutions for those Cambodians who lack a decent place to call home.
Our dream, or our vision so to say, is ‘A world where everyone has a decent place to live.’
