Like many women in Zambia and around the world, Gertrude has struggled to give her daughters a safe & secure place to grow.
In Zambia & Malawi, our long-term partnerships are focused on supporting Habitat’s Orphaned and Vulnerable Children programmes. The programme builds homes alongside the most vulnerable in the community.
At Habitat, we believe that a safe home is the foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty. Families are healthier, children do better in school and parents have a chance to earn a stable income.
Gertrude now sells tomatoes and charcoal from a small spot on the edge of her property, an opportunity and income stream she had never had before.
“It is a very strong house, I never dreamed that I would have such a strong house.” – Gertrude
Every day, Habitat for Humanity works beside families to build, renovate or repair their home in 70 countries around the world.
This Christmas- be a part of this life-changing work & raise funds so that others like Gertrude, Ruth & Naomi have a decent place to call home.
