For the second week of our Giving Tuesday campaign we are talking about our involvement with natural disaster prevention and relief. Habitat Guatemala supports Guatemalan families in the most challenging times to rebuild their lives. But we could not do this, sometimes lifesaving, without the faithful support of our partners.
Habitat Guatemala is well qualified to deliver natural disaster programs having:
– Been a leader in the provision of sustainable housing solutions in Guatemala for decades.
– Trained more than 15,000 people in disaster preparedness and mitigation since 2012
– A comprehensive ground up committee structure that connects Habitat to community leaders who can influence change and inform us of current need (A 2005 study revealed that local community committees are the most active bodies in Guatemala).
– An established project methodology born from experience.
