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.
Families who live below the poverty line miss out on more than money. Poverty also means limited or no access to healthy food, clean water, education, and healthcare.
Without a secure home, a family can never be comfortable. Families live in fear of weather, crime, and are in a constant state of simply getting by, rather than thriving.
THEIR LIVING BY
Garbage pickers make less than $2 a day, an amount that makes it impossible to save for a home, and requires that children work instead of going to school, perpetuating the cycle of poverty.
What Communities Achieve
With a secure home, a family can focus on investing their future, knowing their efforts will be growing on a solid foundation that won’t wash away.
Children who grow up in safe homes and communities are healthier, happier, and more likely to foster those kinds of communities in their future.
Families with stable communities have more opportunity for educating their children, getting better access to food and healthcare, and supporting one another.
