Our Habitat for Humanity Partner Affiliate

Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity is a tithe partner to Hábitat para la Humanidad Nicaragua. Nicaragua is the second poorest country in Latin America. Our tithe partnership began over 25 years ago. To date, Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity’s support has helped build 103 homes in Nicaragua. We have tithed more than $330,000 from our unrestricted funds to help Habitat families in developing countries realize the dream of homeownership.

Right now, almost 80% of the Nicaraguan population lives on less than $2 a day with living conditions that are unimaginable to most of us here in the United States.

Our tithe relationship with Habitat Nicaragua is part of our covenant with Habitat for Humanity International. This partnership helps us remember that we are part of a global movement with a vision: A world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Mission

Habitat for Humanity Nicaragua advocates and works to defend the right to adequate housing and the improvement of communities, inspired by the teachings of Jesus Christ and in collaboration with the communities themselves, putting special emphasis on sectors of greatest need.
