How you help us make a big impact in Uganda

In some countries, like Uganda, the extent of housing poverty calls for innovative ideas that can work on a big scale. This is where our microfinance programme comes in.

We promote the practice of incremental building – first the walls, then the roof, then the doors and windows etc. This keeps the loan size small and affordable, making it an ideal way of supporting people like Halima.

Halima had already completed the foundation of her future home before she contacted us for help. She had the know-how to build but needed some money for building materials.

“It was frustrating”, she remembers. “Having to pay rent and other costs, it was difficult to store up all I needed to finish the house.”

Today her house is complete, Halima says, “home makes you feel like you belong somewhere.” 

Donate now

If you’re not into partying or baking, you can still support the challenge by making a donation to our vital work.

Give today

Had a blast giving back to this awesome community yesterday and learning more about what habitatwaterlooregion does for low income families throughout the region. It was a truly inspiring experience and I can’t wait to come back!

OHHH 😯 I have some exciting news to share so keep reading.. I don’t know about you, but I am loving these types of sunnies. I borrowed them from a friend the second I saw them and was like yuppp need them for the picture haha. 😜 Okay, okay, now the news: My boyfriend and I are going to be doing a Habitat for Humanity build in a few weekends and I am so excited. With everything going on around the world with all the destruction from Hurricane Doreen, this couldn’t of came at a better time. We will be doing the build with his company and it’s just to give back to the community. I hope they don’t have me heavy lifting ;) hehe jk I can definitely try..just call me Lindsey the Builder! 🏠How do you help your local community?
