What We Build

More than just four walls and a roof, Habitat for Humanity builds strong and resilient structures that make our home partners feel secure. Safe and decent homes uplift a family’s standard of living by giving them a true sense of ownership and pride.

Through the years, our organization has also expanded its services by providing water and sanitation facilities, schools, health centers, libraries, and multi-purpose buildings that can benefit the whole community.

Stonewell

Zone 1 and Zone 2 Pinamalayan, Oriental Mindoro

BACKGROUND:

The Philippines has a housing backlog of around 5 million. This number does not take into account families affected by both natural and man- made calamities which strike the Philippines every year. Therefore, millions of Filipinos lack access to permanent and decent housing and if there is no intervention to this national issue, the number of houses required is estimated to reach 6.5 million by 2030.

Some of these families have the means to acquire a simple, decent home. In Barangay San Pedro in Sto. Tomas, Batangas, families particularly comprised of public and factory employees fall into this category. However, there are not enough homes offered in the market that fits their financial capacity. Therefore, many families are forced to rent a place that they must share with other families.

Habitat for Humanity Philippines aims to break this generational cycle through developing communities such as Stonewell in Bgy. San Pedro, Batangas. Through this project, Habitat is partnering with all sectors to address these underserved families.

Pasig 2

Molave St., Sitio Nagpayong Bgy. Pinagbuhatan, Pasig CityNational

RATIONALE AND BRIEF BACKGROUND:

Thousands of informal settler families live in houses made of light materials along Metro Manila’s waterways, particularly the Pasig River. These make shift houses easily deteriorate and offer little or no protection, as areas on or near waterways are easily prone to flooding when rain and storms affect the city.

Habitat’s Pasig 2 site is intended to provide safe and secure homes that will provide sustainable protection for families living in these areas, or in other dangerous areas of the city.

Karismaville

Bgy. Panghulo, Malabon City National Capital Region

RATIONALE AND BRIEF BACKGROUND:

In early 2000, the Philippine National Railway opted to renovate railways located in Malabon City. Thousands of families at the time lived beside those affected train tracks, in makeshift houses made of ply board as walls and corrugated iron as roofs.

Habitat’s Karismaville site is intended to provide decent homes for those affected by the railway renovation, by relocating them to an unaffected, safe area in Barangay Panghulo.
