Habitat for Humanity Guatemala was founded in response to the earthquake of 1976. It is estimated that one in six Guatemalans were left homeless when their homes, mostly adobe structures, were destroyed by the powerful quake. Habitat for Humanity came to Guatemala in an effort to help rebuild and prepare families for future natural disasters.
Today, Habitat Guatemala works to improve the quality of life of Guatemalan families through partial or full funding for the construction, improvement and repair of homes across the country. With over 85,000 housing solutions to date, Habitat Guatemala has contributed to the reduction of 4.6% of the country’s housing deficit, both qualitative and quantitative. Our commitment is to ensure all Guatemalans inhabit adequate housing.
Thank you so much for supporting our team!
