Organization Summary

Habitat for Humanity started working in Nepal since 1997. In the eight years till 2005, Habitat for Humanity Nepal has helped 830 families to build decent homes in the districts of Kailali, Surkhet, Kaski, Chitwan and Jhapa. To increase its impact, HFH Nepal began to leverage on partnerships with non-governmental organizations, microfinance institutions, and village lending and saving groups. Driven by the overall vision of the organization, the Meaningful Life through Housing Campaign was launched in July 2011. Through the campaign, HFH Nepal aims to develop a people-driven and community-owned methodology to address the need for decent housing in a sustainable and viable way. Programs are largely focused on rural housing in eastern and western Nepal.

In June 2011, HFH Nepal celebrated its 10,000th family served and by the fiscal year ended 30 June 2014 more than 54,000 families were helped. The momentum continued until Nepal was hit by two major earthquakes on 25 April and 12 May, 2015.

The earthquakes, in April and May of 2015, destroyed and damaged more than 880,000 houses killing over 8,000 people. HFH Nepal’s disaster response included rubble removal with the help of local volunteers, distribution of temporary shelter kits and water backpacks for the affected families to enable survivors’ to fetch and store water. Through generous funding, HFH Nepal is helping affected families by providing technical assistance in conducting safety assessment of the damaged houses and distribution of winterization kits to the affected families to protect against the cold weather.

Through the Build Nepal strategy, Habitat Nepal is committed to building homes and hope in both disaster-affected and non-affected areas across the country.
