Before they built their #Habitat house, Bicheka and her family moved often, desperately searching for a home they could afford. Her father feared that these disruptions would affect his daughter's schooling. "Without a house," he says, "we would be floating wherever the wind takes us." With a Habitat house, "wonderful and smart and talkative" Bicheka now has a chance to steer her own course in Cambodia. Learn more about our work around the world: http://bit.ly/12MCABR

#TBT In 2012, Habitat for Humanity Ireland volunteers travelled to Santo, Haiti to build homes with local families and hundreds of volunteers from around the world on the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project. Homes were built for 100 families who had been displaced from their homes after the 2010 earthquake.

Habitat for Humanity Zambia’s Pamwesu Programme, co-funded by #IrishAid, supports families made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS. It allows families to stay together, learn their rights, gain security, and plan for the future. Thanks to Irish Aid, our supporters, and volunteers, children like Edith (pictured) have benefited from appropriate, fully subsidised houses that keep them safe, healthy, and most importantly, with their family. Learn more and support our programme today: http://bit.ly/2rLSBYR

Across the globe, urban populations have increased rapidly, outstripping available housing. Many new city dwellers live in informal settlements, which are often overcrowded, unsafe and unsanitary. Habitat for Humanity’s Solid Ground campaign is working to upgrade slums and informal settlements by securing land rights for slum dwellers and advocating for policies that improve access to basic sanitation services. This #WorldPopulationDay, join our campaign and use your voice to urge leaders to prioritise housing and land rights in our rapidly urbanising world: http://bit.ly/2uIqGKd.

In 2005, Habitat for Humanity Zambia created a programme specifically to help address the extreme housing and support needs of women and children affected by the country’s HIV/AIDS epidemic. Robson is one of thousands of Zambians who have been supported by this programme. Today, Robson and his grandmother live together in a safe, sturdy brick house. Donate today to help more families like Robson’s gain stability and shelter after loss: http://bit.ly/2rLK9bU
