Habitat for Humanity Hungary

At Habitat for Humanity Hungary we work for a future where every person can live in a decent home. We aim to realize this by directly supporting those in need and by achieving the implementation of a fairer and more inclusive housing policy in Hungary.

We firmly believe that only a safe, healthy and affordable home can provide a basis for a productive and full life. Today in Hungary, housing poverty is not only the result, but also the cause itself for social problems.

Habitat for Humanity works in 70 countries around the world to allow everyone to have a healthy, affordable, decent home. Housing poverty affects 1.5 million people in Hungary. Such a problem requires comprehensive cooperation and a more efficient housing policy in order to be resolved. We wish to improve the housing conditions for this 1.5 million people with our pilot programs and policy work.
