Habitat Ethiopia's Program

For more than 25 years, Habitat for Humanity Ethiopia has been working with low income and vulnerable families to help them move to decent houses, and get access to improved hygiene and sanitation services. In 2016 we launched Disaster Risk Response and Reduction-DR3 Project to assist families who are affected by drought and severe shortage of water. Currently, HFH is implementing its programs in  Addis Ababa, Kombolcha, Bahir Dar, Dessie towns and Arsi Negele and Shalla districts in Oromiya Region.


To expand its work in terms of scale and depth  and reach more families through housing, water, sanitation and hygiene, Habitat Ethiopia is developing strategic plan. While the strategic plan development is in progress, we take into account the multidimensional poverty challenges in Ethiopia to diversify our interventions and bring about impact at community, sector and societal levels. The key components of the strategic are programs designed to address urgent needs.


Our program help build strength, stability and self-reliance.
