Habitat for Humanity in the Netherlands
Habitat for Humanity Nederland was founded in April 1993 with the goal to raise funds and awareness for Habitat’s work worldwide. The national office is located in Hoofddorp, near Amsterdam. Our main donors and partners are from the corporate sector or from institutional and family foundations, often with a strong link to the banking and construction industries.
Habitat for Humanity Nederland partners with a wide range of supporters, including individual donors, service clubs and development organizations. Since 1993, we have supported projects in more than 30 countries around the world.
Habitat Nederland’s focus
Build with the most vulnerable
Habitat’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Habitat for Humanity Nederland has supported many projects around the globe over the past 30 years, from adapted housing for children with disabilities in Uganda and climate-smart housing in Cambodia to creating jobs for youth in the construction sector in Kenya, supporting earthquake recovery in Haiti and Nepal, and providing safe shelter for refugees from Ukraine. The organization engages in a variety of initiatives to provide the most vulnerable families with safe and decent housing, running water and proper sanitation, recognizing the broader effects of housing in areas such as health, livelihoods and education. In FY22, Habitat Nederland supported 5,389 people per month on average.
In the Netherlands, Habitat seeks to inform and educate as many people as possible about the global housing crisis and our own work. We involve supporters in global work, motivate them to raise funds for Habitat’s international programs and mobilize them to support our cause.
