Our Process

World Housing provides homes to families living in slums in the developing world, fostering communities where families can thrive with safety, security, and access to the resources that change lives.

step 01
We Find Slum Communities Around The World

We select the countries where we work based on the degree of poverty, housing needs, and the opportunity to partner with strong local community builders.

step 02
We Work With Local and Global Partners

We work with local partners who have an in-depth knowledge of community building, years of proven impact and expertise for their specific region. We leverage our partnerships with global home building experts and apply this knowledge to improve and evolve our communities at a local level.

step 03
We Employ Local Home Builders

Every community-building partner we work with employs local builders, providing jobs and opportunities within the region. Whenever possible, we source materials locally to reduce our environmental impact and support the economy.

step 04
Families Move Into The Homes

We identify families to move into the homes based on a set of qualifying criteria. We find like-minded families that will act as markers of social change long after their homes have been built. Families must have a personal desire to uplift their family and community. Children must be enrolled in school and not working. Maintain a home free of abuse.

step 05
Communities Are Built

When we build homes, we build communities, and incredible things start to happen. A new home means a new start, the beginning of a life with safety, security and stability as a foundation. What grows from there is a restoration of dignity and hope for the future. Families and communities begin to thrive, bringing up a new generation of healthy, educated and inspired leaders for their community. A home is just the beginning.

step 06
We Prove The Impact

We’re committed to making an impact and updating you through social media, email and our website with photos, videos, and stories from the community that you helped create.
