Why donate to our charity

One in five people across the world live in slums and substandard housing, locking them into a grinding cycle of poverty. The lack of proper housing negatively affects their health and well-being, their ability to go to school and to make a living. 

Our vision is a world where everyone has a safe place to call home. We believe that a decent home helps to permanently break the cycle of poverty and allows families to achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance. Since 1976, we have built more than 1 million homes and helped over 10 million people.

Where your donation goes

Charitable spending - where your money goes

For every £1 you give, we spend:

  • 90p on fighting extreme poverty housing (via building and repairing homes, providing clean water, responding to disasters, etc)
  • 10p on raising the next £1 (including governance and administrative costs)
  • To find our more about our financials, download our 2016 annual report
