THE STORY:

The majority of houses in Nicaragua, in both rural and urban areas, are deficient in some way. Forty-five percent of the houses have dirt floors, and many have inadequate roofs. It is estimated that 30 percent of Nicaraguans live in overcrowded housing. Basic housing services are also severely lacking. Only 40 percent of homes have access to water through plumbing, with an additional 30 percent obtaining water through wells, rivers, and public fountains. Only 25 percent of homes have toilets, while 60 percent of homes must meet their sanitation needs through a private or public latrine. When natural disasters strike Nicaragua, it is usually the poor families who suffer the most. Their homes are easily destroyed by rain and wind. These families also lack the financial resources to recover quickly from such disasters. The way Habitat works in Nicaragua as part of its new strategy, Habitat Nicaragua focuses on three primary areas of housing solutions. Home replacement, improvement, and expansion.

Habitat Nicaragua may work with a partner family to pour a concrete floor, replace a roof and expand a production area of a home (like a kitchen so that the mother may bake bread to sell in the community), build a latrine or even replace a house entirely. Habitat Nicaragua places particular emphasis on serving families headed by women, families with three or more members, families with disabilities, families who use their homes for economic purposes, and families who make less than $350 per month.
