Over a billion people live without adequate shelter.
That’s 14% of the world’s population. Put another way, that's 1 in 8 people alive today living without hope amongst trash, sewage, drugs, and abuse in unimaginable conditions. Life without secure housing is a life without basic needs being met. Families living without safety, stability, education and nutrition lack dignity and hope for the future.
World Housing - Celebrating 10 Years

Our mission is to create lasting social change. World Housing homes cause a ripple effect, and those ripples change lives.
We believe in housing first. 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 begin to thrive, bringing up a new generation of healthy, educated, and inspired leaders for their community.
World Housing Communities
Lenkov Village, Cambodia – Phnom Penh
We are excited to announce we are building another community in Phnom Penh, the Lenkov Village, named in honour of our major benefactors The Lenkov Family. Peter and Audie Lenkov generously gave up their home and their time and resources to host the annual 2023 House Party in L.A. in June where we raised the necessary funds to build this community.
A World Housing Safe House and vegetable garden and orchard are to be built. We are also drilling a new well for the Safe House to ensure there is adequate fresh water supply for years to come. We have already raised $100,000 to realize this project thanks to our major donor The Canadian Tilling Foundation who provided a major grant for $50,000. The balance of the funds have come from World Housing donors and we need just $10,000 to complete the funding for the new well. The Safe House is near completion and will allow 30 girls to start school in January 2024. This house means they can go to school , and will create meaningful change in the lives of many young girls and women in Zambia long into the future. The ultimate goal is to help these individuals lift themselves out of the gendered cycle of poverty by prioritizing their safety, well-being, and education.
If you’d like to get involved with our work in Zambia, please get in touch, or make a donation. 100% of the funds you give will go towards providing safe housing for those that need it most.
