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

Components for the #habitatbuild keep piling up. Having all/most of the items early certainly helps determine positioning and spacing, but makes me very eager to get them in.

Why do we build? Because children who live in homes with leaking roofs, broken windows, nonfunctioning heaters or stoves, peeling paint, exposed wiring or unsafe/unclean environments often experience greater emotional and behavioral problems. We believe it’s our duty to help people avoid living like that. #HabitatFacts
