what we do overseas
We work in partnership with the Australian Government through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP) and our global Habitat for Humanity offices to deliver our international programs overseas. We partner with communities across the Asia Pacific region to address housing problems and to support integrated community development.
we do more than just build houses
our development approach
Our strategic focus is to transform lives by tackling housing inequality in an increasingly urbanised world. Directly linking families and communities to financial support mechanisms, secure tenure and safe housing products and services, including access to basic services such as water, sanitation, waste management and electricity. We achieve this by building impact.

Habitat for Humanity Australia is committed to achieving UN Sustainable Development Goals throughout our programs. Housing is a driver, catalyst and contributor for the following five SDG goals:
No Poverty Adequate housing builds resilience and reduces vulnerability to economic, social, and climate-related shocks and disasters.
Gender Equality Equal access to housing protects women from discriminatory policies and practices related to land distribution, titling and inheritance.
Clean Water and Sanitation Access to clean water and sanitation are integral to safe, healthy, adequate housing.
Affordable and Clean Energy Housing systems that are energy-efficient and that use affordable, clean, energy save costs and reduces air pollution and the effects of climate change
Sustainable Cities and Communities Access to affordable, adequate, safe, and inclusive housing and basic services increases resilience.
