Where we work

map showing countries in five regions where Habitat works around the world

Habitat for Humanity works in more than 70 countries grouped into five regions — we have helped more than 59 million people improve their living conditions since 1976.

Habitat works together with families, local communities, volunteers and partners from around the world so that more people are able to live in affordable and safe homes. Our advocacy efforts focus on policy reform to remove systemic barriers preventing low-income and historically underserved families from accessing adequate, affordable shelter.

Read our capacity statements for some of the countries we work in and learn about our specific areas of programming and expertise in various sectors, from land tenure security and disaster response to microfinance and water, sanitation and hygiene, or WASH.

  • We work in many countries in sub-Saharan Africa, including Ethiopia, Kenya, South Africa and more.
