Who We Are

We are an International Non-Profit organization dedicated to fighting global poverty housing and homelessness through affordable housing and sanitation facilities across Sri Lanka.

What We Do

At Habitat for Humanity we don’t just build homes, we build communities. We construct safe, affordable durable homes for families in need. Habitat for Humanity Sri Lanka works to lay the foundations for the future and create change that impacts generations.

26 years of Impact

Since 1976, Habitat for Humanity has helped more than 29 million people globally, to build or renovate the place they call home. In Sri Lanka, since 1994 Habitat has supported over 27,000 families and nearly 110,000 people with new homes.

A Place to Call Home

"This home means so much more to us than a permanent place to live. My wife and I know that this is a ladder for my children to dream and do things we were not able to when we were their age."
- Sivarasa, Batticaloa

A Dream Come True

"This is a dream come true for our little family. We have got a second chance at life. We are so excited to see our children grow up in this new home."
-Sudharshani, Kalutara

A House of Dreams

"Habitat for Humanity helped my late husband build this home with his own hands, nearly 20 years ago. This is his legacy, the place our children call home. Thank you Habitat for changing our lives."
- Jegajothy, Hatton

A Foundation of Hope

"For the first time, I have a room of my own. I have decorated the walls with my favourite stickers, and I now have a place to study. I want to study hard and become a teacher one day."
- Savisha, Kalutara

Hope for the Next Generation

"After decades of displacement due to the war, we're finally able to rebuild our lives. We are happy and hopeful about this next chapter in our lives."
-Kumaraguru, Batticaloa
