Over one billion men, women, and children are living in slums in the developing world. These abhorrent conditions are a personal tragedy for each family that lives in them. They also represent a moral crisis for the rest of us–and a threat to the global economy and world security.

Global Housing Foundation's (GHF's) mission is to provide affordable housing for the working poor. Around the world, these industrious laborers currently live in deplorable conditions fearing for their safety, security and shelter from the elements. Our success stories have proven that security of tenure and pride of home ownership translates to improved family conditions, and ensures a better life for generations.
