Over a billion people live in slums. That’s 14% of the world’s population. Put another way, that's 1 in 7 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 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.
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 and communities begin to thrive, bringing up a new generation of healthy, educated, and inspired leaders for their community.
