Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) is a nongovernmental shelter organization currently working in over 85 countries. It seeks to eliminate inadequate housing and homelessness by making safe shelter a matter of conscience and action.
Habitat for Humanity Vietnam (HFHV) is a part of HFHI and began operations in 2001 providing low cost housing, water and sanitation solutions to marginalized households. HFHV believes in building and strengthening community resilience and capacity through the elimination of inadequate housing and seeks to address the serious issue of poor water, sanitation and hygiene in Vietnam through innovative programs and partnerships. HFHV achieves this through the mobilization of resources such as construction materials, volunteer labor and microfinance mechanisms. Habitat Vietnam’s core trainings for home partners include home maintenance and construction skills; financial literacy; community-based disaster risk management (including climate change adaptation); and basic water and sanitation hygiene.

To date, HFHV has served over 13,600 families via a mixture of new houses and water and sanitation facilities; repairs/upgrades; disaster response and mitigation construction training and assistance, assistance with obtaining secure tenure; and technical support. HFHV currently has projects in Hoa Binh, Phu Tho and Thai Nguyen in the north; Quang Nam province in the central region; and Long An, Tien Giang and Ba Ria-Vung Tau and Dong Thap provinces in the south.
