Housing.com and Habitat for Humanity India build homes for the underprivileged
With a view to building strength, stability and self-reliance among people, Housing.com has partnered with Habitat for Humanity India to build affordable homes for families in need of respectable shelter. As a start to the partnership, employees from Housing provided their sweat equity to build homes for four families in JJ Colony, Bawana in Delhi.
Anchored by the conviction that housing provides a critical foundation for families to build a better future for themselves while contributing towards their financial and social stability, Habitat for Humanity India has been working with low-income, marginalised families to build homes and sanitation units across India. Within 35 years of service in the country, Habitat India has been able to benefit more than 3.8 lakh families across India. As a part of the partnership, Housing.com will leverage its social channels to raise awareness and promote the work done by Habitat India in building a shelter for families that lack adequate housing.
Commenting on the partnership Dhruv Agarwala, Group CEO, Housing.com, PropTiger.com and Makaan.com, said “We strongly believe in the right to safe and adequate shelter for everyone. Inspired by the vision and work done by Habitat for Humanity in affordable housing, our employees will continue to invest their time and effort in the Build with Habitat program. Our teams will generate awareness and promote Habitat India’s work through our social media channels. We are honoured to support this high impact effort and will continue to participate in their upcoming builds.”
“Habitat for Humanity India and Housing.com share a similar goal of providing affordable and sustainable homes for the people in need. The collaboration will open new avenues for Habitat India to help serve more people in need of decent housing in India. By 2022, Habitat India aims to reach out to more than 51 million people and with this collaboration, we have moved a step closer achieve this goal,” said Rajan Samuel, Managing Director, Habitat for Humanity India.
