Hábitat para la Humanidad Nicaragua is our partner affiliate. Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity supports Habitat Nicaragua by tithing unrestricted funds each year. We have sponsored nearly 100 homes in Nicaragua since 1987 with more than $300,000 in financial support. See this report for Habitat Nicaragua's 2014 accomplishments.
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.
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.
