Everything starts at home: Building a house for Benny

Habitat for Humanity Mexico brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.

HABITAT PARA LA HUMANIDAD MEXICO AC

Community

Our story

Families in need of affordable housing live everywhere: small towns and villages, sprawling cities, your community. Housing need presents itself wherever people live and work, and it takes many forms and has far-reaching effects.

THE NEED

Across the globe, urban populations have increased rapidly, often outstripping available housing. A century ago, one out of every five people lived in urban areas; now, for the first time in human history, more than half of us do. In these circumstances — and in many others brought about by various policies, laws and systems — one of the biggest obstacles to a world where everyone has a decent and affordable place to live can be access to land for shelter in the first place.

In response to the ever-growing need for shelter in your community and around the world, Habitat works in many ways: new construction, repairs to existing homes, small loans for incremental building and home improvements, help establishing title and ownership to land, advocacy for better laws and systems, disaster prevention and recovery, and more.

MEXICO

In México the housing deficit  represents 28.3% of the total households in the country. This means that 34 million people are living in inadequate housing. A Mexican family without financial supports takes 20 years to build their house, with Habitat; a family completes its training (financial workshops, construction and design assistance, healthy housing program) and construction process in between 6 and 12 months.

YOUR SUPPORT

With your help we can make a change building a world where everyone has a decent and affordable place to live.

Families paying too high a percentage of their income for housing often find themselves making impossible choices. Rent or health care? Food or transportation?

A decent and affordable place to live helps families by freeing them from such physical and mental hardships and placing them on a path of new opportunity and increased confidence and self-reliance.

Habitat works with families to help them acquire the access, skills and financial education necessary for them to be successful homeowners. By partnering with us, families seize the opportunity and possibility that decent, affordable housing represents. Through shelter, we empower.

With your support we can build a new beginning to Benny´s family. The goal is to help Benny to build a new house in the state of Hidalgo, in the community of Bominthza. The cost of the build is $10,000 USD, this amount will cover the construction materials, financial workshops and technical and design assistance. To help this family to build strength, stability and self-reliance.
